Default Cruise Ship Collisions

Maybe its just me, but I think we've been hearing of a lot more cruise ship collisions in the last couple of years. Now it may just be that I had not looked for them in the past, but it seems to come to light now that ships have been hitting each other (Costa Classical and MSC Poesia, CCL Legend and Enchantment OTS in Cozumel, and evidently CCL Destiny and CCL Inspiration clipped today in Cozumel as well, though I am waiting to hear back from Ryan as to the details), as well as the piers (Carnival Splendor, Costa Concordia, Carnival Imagination, Regent's Seven Seas Voyager, Norwegian Spirit, and Queen Victoria). Most of the collisions remained the faults of the harbor pilots though a couple were charged to mechanical failure.

Costa Concordia Damage
Carnival Splendor Damage
Carnival Imagination Damage
Enchantment OTS and Carnival Legend Damage
Norwegian Spirit Damage

Quick Update:
Destiny and Inspiration had a very close call yesterday in Cozumel, no word as to there was an actual collision.

Ok, story on Destiny-Inspiration was that the tip of the Destiny's bow touched the back of the Inspiration coming into port in Cozumel on Saturday. No damage, just some noise and no reports were filed according to a staff officer onboard the Navigator of the Seas.

Cozumel has had a lot of problems with "fender benders" lately. Port officials told us that because of the unusually bad weather, they've had a very hard time getting ships in and out of port without incident, especially in the downtown port which is frequented by HAL, NCL and the occasional Carnival vessel.

20' seas, 50 knot winds and mid-40 temperatures made our last 2 days a bit of a nightmare. It was also the first time I had heard the captain of a vessel make such blatant announcements regarding weather-safety issues; warning guests to take Dramamine, wear flat shoes and avoid skirts and dresses at all costs. The final day waves were washing up close to and over the 4th deck outer perimeter and the ship did some SERIOUS rocking (uncommonly violent for a Voyager class vessel).
