http://www.sun-sentinel.com/travel/fl-reg-cruise-ship-armonia-sets-sail-20180411-story.htmlThis collision (allision) is close to the one Celebrity had with their Infinity in Ketchikan that I posted about some time back, except it was the Infinity stern not the bow and wind had a lot to do with it. Here are a few excerpts from the NTSB report concerning Celebrity Cruises' Infinity accident at Ketchikan, plus the link to the NTSB investigation: https://www.ntsb.gov/investigations/AccidentReports/Reports/MAB1736.pdf
Move along now folks, nothing to see here, or so says the cruise line.
Norwegian Getaway, length 1,066 feet. Just docked at Coxen Hole Roatan, plenty of bitts, cleats, mooring dolphins and platforms-------no problems reported----
AHAHAHA! Okay, that's funny!
A good update. Accidents can happen anywhere.
Normally I wouldn't be interested in the results of an overblown incident from 8 months ago, but it got me to thinking...ROATAN is one of the usual stops on the Carib for a lot of lines. The one we just took a few weeks ago on BREAKAWAY skipped it...our upcoming in FEB also on BREAKAWAY also will skip it. Ours for next NOV on GETAWAY, stops there. Ours for the following APRIL 2020 also on GETAWAY skips it. So apparently ROATAN is/was back in biz.
FWIW, we've been there. Several times. Did a couple of excursions, and has been added for several years now to the list of ports where we enjoy the relative emptiness of the ship. You can meet the nicest folks who don't get off either..Even the Queen is fascinated watching the container cranes do their thing next to the ship. Its a working port.
I hate when that happens.
