Tugboat Squeezed By Large Cruise Ship

We wouldn’t like to be on this tugboat while being squeezed by the Carnival Liberty. Not much details were released by the YouTube user but does seem to be from a recent cruise. The 110,000 gross ton vessel recently had a bow thrusters issue and as a result needed help by tugboats when docking at ports of calls.

In the video the tugboat can be seen pushing the ship back and thankfully manages to get free after being squeezed between the ship and the dock. The Carnival Liberty is of course now fixed and back to regular sailings. The ship can carry 2,970 passengers at double occupancy and sails Western Caribbean cruises from Galveston, Texas.
