"Whatever the case, the steel-hulled patrol ship suffered severe damage from
repeatedly ramming the cruise ship, began to take on water, and ultimately
sank. Columbia Cruise Services says Resolute remained in the area until it
was clear its services were not required to help in the rescue of the 44
crew members. It then continued on, as planned, to the Port of Willemstad in
Curaçao.

"Venezuelan authorities have disputed this version of events, claiming
Resolute "in a cowardly and criminal manner fled collision site and didn’t
try to rescue the crew of sinking ship." Venezuelan Minister of Defense
Vladimir Padrino also described the cruise ship's actions as an "act of
imperial aggression" and "piracy."
