Caught on Video: MSC Cruise Ship Crashes Into Dock in the Caribbean

CRUISE company MSC Cruises is investigating why one of its ships “deviated from her course” and ended up tearing apart a dock in Honduras on Tuesday morning.

The MSC Armonia, which is in the middle of a weeks-long cruise to the Caribbean, was heading into Port Coxen Hole on the island of Roatán when it failed to slow to a stop and crashed into the dock before running aground on the beach, NPR and Fox News reported.

Footage of the incident shared by YouTube user gCaptain shows witnesses looking on in shock as the MSC Armonia tears into the pier — along with the sounds of the structure crunching under the weight of the 59,000-tonne ship.

One of the men heard in the video repeatedly yells for others to “get out of the kitchen” of a nearby restaurant, according to USA Today.
