Close Call

This was posted elsewhere

"Freedom of the Seas" passed under the bridge between Denmark & Sweden with 1.5M clearance during Easter.

LW and full power gave the ship the required 1.5M clearance needed... (ship squats 1M + under full load)... but must have been a bit worrying....

Thats not the bridge between Denmark and Sweden

Thats the bridge between Funen and Zealand, both is part of Denmark. According to the map anyway.

The captain was quoted that it was a bit exiting to put the vessel under full power toward a bridge that was not high enough.
