Cruise ship Costa Deliziosa (IMO 9398917) almost hit the quay at Riva Sette Martiri while leaving the Venice lagoon today under a heavy storm with strong wind gusts. A private yacht and a couple of 'vaporetti' (typical Venice ferries) also escaped unscattered. Images taken at the scene are simply dramatic (see below).

Man, those locals in the video sounded pi$$ed... Smiley

Otherwise, the large cruise ships are indeed the scourge of Venice.
