Via Google translate from Ansa.it we learn: “The bow tug (which it looked like a single one) he tried a desperate maneuver, taking himself completely to the starboard side of the ship, to ‘pull’ her with the maximum power there in order to take her away from the shore.

That was WAY too close! This near miss follows the recent viral video of an MSC ship taking out a tourist boat and the NCL Epic destroying part of a pier in San Juan.

If you are not aware, residents of Venice are really upset over cruise ships visiting the city and thousands have demonstrated recently. I am sure this event, and the choice to dock during such a storm by the Costa captain, will not help things.
