Departing cruise ship creates tsunami that destroys docks, boats

The Carnival Vista, the largest cruise ship in Carnivalís fleet, pulled out of the Port of Messina in Sicily, Italy, recently with quite the head of steam, leaving an estimated $280,000 worth of damage in its wake. Literally.

As the 134,000-ton cruise ship pulled out of port, its engines churned up the water and created a mini-tsunami that slammed into the Marina del Nettuno.

The strong wake overturned concrete docks that sank boats, as shown in the amazing CCTV footage above provided by the Daily Mail.

The $780,000 cruise ship that launched in May continued on its merry way apparently oblivious to the destruction it left behind, according to Russia Today and Ansa. An investigation is underway by the Messina harbor master.

1. That cruise ship certainly cost a whole lot more than 780,000.

Man I wish people actually edited stuff.

3. I think $780,000 for a 134,000-ton cruise ship is quite a bargain. ( n/t )
