A Celebrity Cruises’ ship hit another cruise ship earlier today after high winds broke the moorings and pushed the ship into another vessel.
Celebrity Constellation was moored at the Port of La Spezia when high winds caused the ship to break away from her moorings and hit another cruise ship. A video posted on Facebook by the cruise page Crucero Fun shows the Celebrity ship hit Costa Magica.
The video can be seen below:
After the moorings of the cruise ship broke and send the vessel adrift, three tug boats assisted in moving Celebrity Constellation away from the Costa ship.
Crucero Fun stated in their Facebook post that the area has been plagued by bad weather since yesterday. They said that five ships spend the night in Venice, Italy due to high winds.
Although the ships made incidental contact, there was little to no damage caused from the incident. Both ships resumed their schedule itineraries. Celebrity Constellation is near the end of an eleven night cruise to Spain, France, and Italy. The cruise is scheduled to end tomorrow in Civitavecchia, Italy.
