Default Ship hits dock in NYC

Which ship is this one?

Cruise ship carrying thousands hits N.Y. pier

Incident causes little damage to Carnival vessel, no injuries reported

Updated: 50 minutes ago
NEW YORK - A cruise ship bumped a pier at the Manhattan passenger terminal Thursday morning, but the incident caused little damage and no injuries were reported, the Fire Department said.

The ship hit the Hudson River pier shortly after 7 a.m. A few thousand people were on board at the time.

The Fire Department said the ship belongs to Carnival. The company did not immediately return a call seeking comment.

This story is being over shadowed by the bridge collapse.

Carnival Cruise Ship Bumps NYC Pier
(CBS) NEW YORK It was a rough landing for a cruise ship on Manhattan's West Side Thursday morning.

The "Carnival Victory" hit the Passenger Ship Terminal pier pretty hard at around 7: 30 a.m.

The ship's bow suffered some minor damage, as did the pier, which is located on 56th Street and 12th Avenue.

There's no word yet on what caused the ship to bump the pier.

No injuries were reported.



I'm sure cruisebruise is all over it tho.
