Two Carnival cruise ships collided while docking in a Cozumel port, video shows. As the Carnival Glory cruise ship was maneuvering to dock, its rear struck the front of the Carnival Legend while it also waited to dock.
One minor injury was reported during an evacuation of a dining room on Decks 3 and 4, spokeswoman Chelsea Stromfeld said.
The ships seaworthiness was not impacted while Carnival personnel assess the entirety of the damage, Stromfeld said.
