Jan.7-2012 the MSC Poesia ran aground off Grand Bahama Island. The Bahamas Air Sea Rescue Association (BASRA) reported that the ship apparently sustained no damages from the incident. According to BASRA, officials waited until about 6PM Bahamas time for the tide to rise, and then utilized four tugs to pull the ship free. The reef suffered extensive damage.

This is not the first time the MSC Poesia has been in the news. Just two months after she was launched in 2008, MSC Poesia and Costa Classica collided in the Adriatic Sea near Dubrovnik. There was minimal damage with no one hurt. Cause of the collision was that the MSC Poesia's anchor became loose and she drifted into the Costa Classica.
