The large container ship came too close to Hanseatic Inspiration until a slight collision occurred at the end. The major collision was avoided after a tugboat managed to pull the container vessel to the port side.

The 2011-built boxship CSCL Star (IMO 9466867, max capacity 13300 TEU-containers) sustained minor damages and was permitted to leave the harbor. The Hapag-Lloyd cruise ship sustained slight damages but details have not been released at this time.
