Cruise ship Celebrity Infinity crashes into Dock in Alaska

Ooops! The 90,000-ton cruise ship crashed into a Ketchikan dock last Friday afternoon, not only damaging itself but taking out docking facilities - Berth 3. Estimated damage - $2 to $3 million...

From alaskapublic:

Robert Knox of Alaska Amphibious Tours was on a nearby walkway, watching the Infinity try to maneuver.
“At first the bow was coming straight in and we figured the bow was going to hit,” Knox said. “And the pilot of the ship was actually able to get the stern turned back so the stern hit the berth instead first. The pilot did deploy the anchor and still didn’t slow the ship down.”
