The cruise line told local media that the Glory was making its way over to a dock when the collision took place. One person suffered a minor injury as guests were evacuated from a dining room, officials said.
Both ships are expected to continue with their itineraries. Carnival says they’ve told guests to enjoy their day ashore. Carnival did not comment further on what led up to the crash.
