MSC Armonia Crashes Into Dock in Roatan

The MSC Armonia crashed into the dock in Roatan, Honduras today, according to videos which were posted on Youtube. The MSC cruise ship is shown coming into the port at a higher than normal rate of speed. In addition to the vesel damage, there was significant damage to the pier.  There are several videos of the incident. Some of the videos show damage to the ship along the forward, port side of the ship. I first saw the video on the popular gCaptain site.  The incident is reminiscent of an incident in Alaska when the Celebrity Infinity struck a wharf in Ketchican two years ago.    Have a comment?
