New footage has been posted online of a Costa cruise ship which came extremely close to breaking free from its mooring ropes.

The video which was posted by Christopher Feuerer shows the Costa neoRomatica being caught in some strong winds. As a result, the aft of the vessel was pushed away from the dock and the mooring lines could have snapped at any moment.

Watch Video Below:

Thankfully the ship’s crew are on hand so some slack could be provided to the ropes from onboard. Most of the guests were in port exploring or on shore excursions. It was also good that nobody was next to the ropes as it can be very dangerous if they broke.

The Costa neoRomatica was making a port of call at Mahe Island, Seychelles and the weather conditions at the time didn’t look so good. The 56,770 gross ton vessel is currently based out of Mauritius and sails 14-day itineraries. The ship can carry over 1,500 guests at double occupancy and is the oldest in the fleet.

By posting this video it shows an insight into cruise ships many of us might not know. It’s especially surprising how strong those mooring lines actually are and the importance of keeping the ship safely docked.
