One passenger is injured after the Carnival Glory and Carnival Legend collided on Friday morning in Cozumel, Mexico. According to video filmed by eyewitnesses, part of the Carnival Glory’s deck was crushed during the crash with Carnival Legend, which was docked at the time of the incident. Carnival is calling the crash an “allision” between the two cruise ships, which is a nautical term that describes the collision of a moving ship with a stationary object — or in this case, a docked boat. The crash occurred when the Carnival Glory was maneuvering to the dock.

In a statement, Carnival Cruises said, “We are assessing the damage but there are no issues that impact the seaworthiness of either ship.” As of right now, neither ship’s itinerary will be affected by the crash.
One passenger did sustain minor injuries, however, while guests were being evacuated.
