Watch the moment two MSC ships collide in port

The moment an MSC Cruises ship hit its sister vessel in port has been caught on camera.

MSC Orchestra struck MSC Poesia at the port in Buenos Aires, Argentina.  

The video shows people shouting out as the drama unfolds and a screeching noise can be heard as Orchestra scrapes its sister ship, while people on board lean over to see what is going on.

MSC Cruises said there were no injuries and an investigation is ongoing.

"Due to reasons we are still investigating, the ship deviated from its course while manoeuvering out of the port and lightly grazed the forward part of MSC Poesia, which was docked alongside.

"While this may have been noticed by some passengers, there was never any risk for guests or crew on board, and there was no impact for the environment," the statement added.
