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).

Costa Deliziosa is 294m long and 32.3m wide, and has gross tonnage of 92720 t. Her capacity is 2826 pax (crew:1100)

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

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