Costa Classica and
Poesia (MSC Cruises) Collide, June 6, 2008
The two cruise ships collided in
the Adriatic Sea near the Croatian tourist town of Dubrovnik, but no
one was injured. According to Croatian media, "Two cruisers collided in
the old town harbour. One of them had to make a full circle around the
isle of Locrum before returning for the passengers waiting in boats."
According to the first assessments, the damage was minimal and the
accident occurred when cruiser Poesia's anchor loosened and caused her
to hit cruiser Costa Classica. Both continued their scheduled itinerary
with no delays.
