MSC Armonia Plowed Into Pier
The MSC Armonia plowed into the pier this morning in Roatan. Numerous videos show the MSC cruise ship approaching the port at a higher than normal rate of speed for docking. It is unknown how much damage was sustained by the pier or the ship, but from the video the damage looked to be significant. It is speculated the vessel could not slow down as it approached the pier due to technical issues. The ship’s anchors had already been lowered to slow down the ship as it approached the pier.
MSC Armonia is on a 14 night cruise to the Caribbean out of Havana, Cuba.
