A Carnival Cruise Ship leaving port pretty much destroyed an Italian marina. Here’s the video.
A closed circuit TV camera in the harbor of Messina, Italy captured the carnage as a Carnival cruise ship was leaving port. Apparently the prop wash from its propellers was so powerful that it swamped small boats and overturned some of the piers.
Watch as almost $300,000 in damage is done before your very eyes.
The port in Sicily known as the Marina del Nettuno has facilities for some 160 smaller vessels along with restaurants and other amenities. It also in the path of these 1,000 foot long, 134,000 ton sea going cruise ships!
An investigation is ongoing possibly paving the way for lawsuits and a hefty fine for the already beleaguered cruise line.
