A very similar thing happened on the Royal Viking Sun (now Prinsendam) on her maiden voyage in 1988.
When passing under a bridge into Copenhagen, the mast was sheared off by a low bridge.
The mast crashed through the roof and ceiling of the Queens Grill Restaurant, almost killing the entire Kloster Family, who owned the cruise line.
