In the afternoon of May 21, 2011, the “Costa Deliziosa” caused major damage to Skoltegrunns Quay in Bergen just before departure. The cruise ship broke lose and took the two bollards and parts of the quay into the sea. 50 feet of the pier was destroyed. Walkways plunged into the sea, and 3 people had a narrow escape, but fortunately there was only material damage. As a precaution, the AHTS “Havila Venus”, which was lying next to the ship, loosened the moorings in case the “Costa Deliziosa” would drift towards it. A tug and two smaller boats picked up the loose bollard with remains of the pier from the harbor. Also the rope in the water had to be removed before the cruise ship could dock again. Finally 100 passengers which had not yet boarded, could be taken on board, and the ship could set course towards Geiranger.

– No one was injured, either on board or ashore. However, there is major damage to Skoltegrunnskaien, the BA.no illuminated by Guard port of Bergen.
