Crane Falls on Royal Caribbean Cruise Ship in the Bahamas

A crane fell on Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Seas while the cruise ship was in dry dock in the Bahamas earlier today.

A still image from a video posted on Twitter by the Bahamas Press. The video can be seen below.

The cruise ship is in dry dock in Freeport this week so one of the vessel’s azipods can be repaired. This week’s cruise to the Western Caribbean was canceled for the unexpected repairs. The incident happened today at shortly after noon. It is unknown at this time if there is any damage to Oasis of the Seas.

Oasis of the Seas is one of the largest cruise ships in the world at 225,000 gross tons. Although the ship carries 6,000 passengers, there were no guests on the ship at the time of the accident.
