Watch A Cruise Ship Crash Into The Side Of The Dock

Video: When you're as big as this cruise ship — and it's really big at 294m long, 32m wide and 91,000 tonnes — it can be hard to stop. So you have to make sure you slow down in time or you'll destroy things because once again, you're a really big ship. This cruise ship, the Celebrity Infinity, didn't stop in time and slammed into the side of a dock at Ketchikan Harbour in Alaska, downing part of the barge and busting up a few mooring dolphins. KRBD says the dock sustained $US2 million to $US3 million ($2.7 million to $4 million) in damages and the cruise ship looks like it has a sizable gash on its side too. Whoops!

Luckily, KRBD also said that no one was injured.
