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.

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