Watch Collison with Nassau Pier (Warning: Bad Language):
It is not known how the collision occurred or if it was just a mistake but we do know is this sure will be investigated by the cruise line and port authorities for sure. The damage to the hull does seem to be above the water line and thankfully no injuries have been reported.
Disney Dream is sailing a 3-night cruise to the Bahamas out of Port Canaveral, Florida. The ship is expected back at its home port on September 2. The ship is 128,000 gross tons and can carry 2,600 passengers at double occupancy.
