Reading Time: < 1 minute

There was another close call for a cruise liner in Venice, Italy, as it came too close to crashing into a dock and once more led to a chorus of protests for mega ships to be banned from the Venetian lagoon

The incident happened on Sunday as the ship seemed to be overwhelmed by a storm while the ship was being guided out of port by tugboats along the Giudecca Canal.

The latest incident to spark calls for mega ships to be banned from the fragile Venetian lagoon. The close call occurred

In a video by YouTube user Roberto Ferrucci, the Costa Deliziosa, a 12-deck cruise ship with capacity for near 3,000 people, can be seen swerving alarmingly close to land and other boats in the middle of a thunderstorm while sounding its long emergency horn.

Thousands of people protested in Venice last month after another cruise ship lost control and rammed into a wharf in the Giudecca Canal.
