Celebrity Infinity Destroys Berth in Ketchikan: VIDEO

   June 4, 2016 ,   Accidents

Celebrity Infinity cruise ship collided with Berth 3 in Ketchikan at around 1415 LT on June 3 while docking. The berth suffered serious damages and is currently inoperative. The collision caused US$2 million to $3 million in damage.

It is still unclear what caused the accident. It is said the vessel was approaching Berth 3 in a strange way, and the people on berth, including Celebrity employees and dockers, had to ran off. There was a strong wind with gusts up to 20 m/sec, but perhaps there was something wrong with the thrusters, or there was a maneuvering mistake.
