Ship collision - that is going to leave a mark

An interesting short video of two freighters colliding in the Strait of Singapore. I know how busy this area is. It seemed that half of the vessels we saw in the Indian Ocean were going to Singapore. I found it interesting at the very beginning of the video there are no warnings being sounded by anyone even though they were so close. Guessing that there was negligent watch-standing on both boats. Also could not figure out where the video was being shot from. Seemed too steady for a helicopter or small plane. Anyone translate the Italian comments?

Heading back to Lake Ontario for this summer. Relatively few stops along the way from Grenada. Martinique, Guadeloupe, St. Martin (must have something to do with the French food), then Bermuda, New England and up the Hudson/Erie Canal. We were going to go via Newfoundland and Labrador but June remembered that one of the kids is getting married this summer - details, details!
