[Watch] Wave from Cruise Ship Sinks Boats, Destroys Pier


The Carnival Vista – Carnival Cruise Line’s newest ship, on departure from its berth in Messina, Sicily on Sunday, – damaged a concrete boat pier with prop wash from its thrusters, sinking several small craft. 

Video shows the “Marina Del Nettuno” pier swamped, overturned and finally torn free by the wave of water from the Vista’s props as she passed close aboard.  

Italian media informs that the port authority has initiated an investigation into the incident.

In addition to being Carnival Cruise Line’s newest vessel, the Vista has LR’s ECO Notation for green technology and is the only cruise ship with a full IMAX movie theatre on board.  It is also the first cruise ship with an aerial cycling track, which suspends riders some 150 feet above the sea, and it has the largest shipboard water park in the Carnival Cruise Lines fleet.
