Gigantic Cruise Ship Destroys Marina, Boats With Massive Wake

September 12, 2016

These are several videos of Carnival's Vista cruise ship destroying a marina and several boats with its powerful wake while departing northeast Sicily. The ship, which is Carnival's newest and largest ship, weighs 133,500-tons, or almost two whole mothers in a your momma joke. The first video was filmed from a passenger aboard the ship, who I believe to be a New Jersey Italian coming back to visit the motherland aboard a giant floating city. The second is security cam footage from the actual dock, which really highlights the damage caused, estimated between $300,000 and "several million" depending on how hard everybody is determined to scam their insurance companies. Did I mention my boat was loaded with pirate gold that got swept away in the current? *dumps can of Chef Boyardee spaghetti with meatballs onto paper plate* Because that happened.

Keep going for two vidoes (the first of which I embedded a Facebook and Youtube version of just in case).

Thanks to Jenness, who agrees it would have sucked to be asleep with a hangover on one of those little boats when this happened.

    According to Carnival it was "strong currents" that made the debarkation difficult. Thankfully when you are in port, most cruise ships leave very early in the morning - had this been any later people would have been on those boats or the docks so it's a good thing as that could have really hurt a lot of people.

    Oh-a-no-ah

    I hope the owners of those boats and the city/marina owners sue the cruiseliner company.

    They just don't give a shit about anyone.

    Agree, it's a well-documented fact that all cruise liners hate humanity in general. This one time I stubbed my toe on the gangway and I swear I heard one of the staff laughing.

  • Dickhead

    I would have laughed at your dumb ass as well!

    Not a big deal but that is not the ships wake.

    Not a big deal? It just destroyed a handful of boats.

    I usually make approximately 6-8 thousand bucks /every month with an internet task i found on the internet. If you are prepared to work simple computer-based task for some hours /day from ease of your home and gain solid benefit for doing it... Then this golden opportunity is for you... http://2.gp/G8zm

    The "not a big deal" was that the damage was caused by "prop wash" not a wake. (The difference being that it was not because the ship was going really fast but rather the captain's attempt to gain control of his ship. It is unclear there why s/he did not have control in the first place so I won't speculate.)

  • Agreed. Definitely not a big deal.
