Carnival Vista which is the largest ever cruise ship for Carnival Cruise Lines has damaged several boats and a pier at a harbor in Messina, Italy.

Local news is reporting that the large ship damaged the Marina del Nettuno in Messina, Italy. On Sunday, August 28. The ship was making a call at Messina and made some maneuvers which were too close to Marina del Nettuno harbor. Carnival Vista was departing the Port of Messina in the afternoon when locals were shocked to see the harbor being wiped out by strong waves. A video has been posted of strong waves occurring due to the ship’s movement.

The shocking footage just shows how dangerous a large cruise ship can be. The pier was hard concrete and looked to be almost completely destroyed. The Pilot boat which was moored at the harbor was hit badly by the pier and strong water currents. Many other moored boats were damaged as the Carnival Vista then began to sail away closely.
