Default Check out the NCL Star Crashing into the Explorer of the Seas

Check out this video and you'll see the NCL breaking loose of its moorings in Bermuda during a storm on September 14, 2012 and crashing into the Explorer of the Seas.

Luckily, very little damage and no injuries, but amazing nonetheless.

Well, that was something to tell friends and family. Thankfully, it was only minor damage.

Did NCL not know they were floating away? If they did wouldn't the captain start up the ship and keep it from crashing into the RC ship. Interesting!
