The Disney cruise ship hit backed into the pier while docking in Nassau, Bahamas, the Disney Cruise Blog reported. As a result, the back end of the cruise ship suffered a bit of damage during its scheduled port of call, according to Disney Cruise Line Blog. The ship is 128,000 gross tons and can carry 2,600 passengers at double occupancy.
The collision was posted on YouTube and the large cruise ship can be seen maneuvering too near the end of the pier in Nassau. While the ship was moving into its docking position, the incident happened.
The incident is being currently investigated by the cruise line and port authorities and it is not known how the collision occurred or if it was just a mistake. The damage to the hull seems to be above the water line and no injuries have been reported.
Despite the damage, the cruise ship appears to be on schedule and later departed for Castaway Cay.
