I'm shocked the video was actually shot in landscape mode. Most people these days just don't have a clue as to how to take videos/pictures

Man...and I felt bad about bumping the dock today!

As I tell my wife... Never approach something faster than you're willing to hit it.

he Opera -- which can carry more than 2,500 passengers and boasts a theatre, ballroom and water park for children -- has suffered mechanical trouble before in 2011, during a Baltic cruise.

- Ship unable to stop -

"The MSC ship had an engine failure, which was immediately reported by the captain," Davide Calderan, head of a tugboat company involved in accompanying the ship into its berth, told Italian media.

"The engine was blocked, but with its thrust on, because the speed was increasing," he said.

The two tug boats that had been guiding the ship into the Giudecca tried to slow it, but one of the chains linking them to the giant snapped under the pressure, he added.

If you look at the smaller boat getting hit at the 15 second mark you see several people trying to get off the boat as it gets hit. Two feel down not sure if one of them didn't go into the water.
