The cruise ship Carnival Vista made a wrong maneuver destroying small tourist pier of Marina del Nettuno, in Messina, Italy. The 130 thousand tons giant of the seas, was performing maneuver to exit the port when it generated violent wave destroying two piers of reinforced concrete. The owner of the pier claims that the damages to the port are estimated at $280 000.

The Harbor Master has opened an investigation to determine the reasons for this costly incident. The owner of the pier has also released the video of the incident caught on the marina surveillance cameras. From the video you can see that the ship was carrying out maneuvers in the port of Messina, but it made them too close to the jetties creating violent waves that hit the marina docks moving and flipping it and causing detachment and damage to some moored boats.
