(CMR) Royal Caribbean International’s Harmony of the Seas collided with a small concrete mooring pylon while docking in Falmouth, Jamaica, on Thursday.
The incident reportedly happened while the ship was backing into its assigned spot at the dock, causing dents, paint scrapes, and other damage to the cruise ship. However, inspections showed the overall damage to be minor and the ship has been successfully repaired, Cruise Hive reported.
Harmony of the Seas is currently sailing a 7-night Western Caribbean itinerary. The ship left Port Canaveral on Sunday, May 22, and visited two ports of call in The Bahamas before docking in Falmouth on Thursday.
“During arrival into Falmouth, Jamaica, Harmony of the Seas made contact with an extension part of the dock,” a Royal Caribbean spokesperson said in a statement provided to Cruise Hive.
“There were no injuries to guests or crew and only minor cosmetic damage to the ship’s stern. The sailing will continue as scheduled,” Royal Caribbean said.
Royal Caribbean was not the only ship to have issues on Thursday; Carnival Freedom caught fire while docked in Grand Turk.
