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.

Cruise Fever will have all updates on this breaking story as more information becomes available.
