Cruise liner wrecks marina and sails into the sunset

Video by a passenger aboard the cruise ship Carnival Vista provides a new view of the moment the giant cruise ship destroyed a marina as it departed Messina, Italy in August.

As the cruise liner drifted down on the marina, the Captain fired up the thrusters to back the ship off the docks.

Unfortunately the thrust was so much that the prop wash acted as a small tsunami swamping boats and overturning piers at the marina.
