A new video filmed from by a passenger aboard the Carnival Vista provides a new view of the moment the giant cruise ship destroyed a marina as it departed Messina, Italy in August.


As you can see from this view it looks like wind may have played a factor, pushing the cruise ship to within just feet of the small marina before the Captain fired up the thrusters to back the ship off the docks. Unfortunately the thrust was so much that the prop wash acted as a small tsunami swamping boats and overturning piers at the marina.
