Last week, the Celestyal Journey, a 700 ft cruise ship, faced a mishap while docking at Kusadasi Port in Turkey. The ship collided with a concrete pier during its routine arrival.

The incident happened when the ship’s crew misjudged its speed and approached the pier too quickly. Despite attempts to slow down by lowering the anchor, the ship hit the concrete pier at noon local time.

Thankfully, there were no injuries among the 597 crew members, and both the ship and the pier suffered minimal damage. Passengers were still able to enjoy their activities in Kusadasi, a famous Greco-Roman city.

Kusadasi Cruise Port, known for its eight berths for larger ships, continues to be Turkey’s top cruise port, with operations unaffected by the incident.
