Cruise ship crashes into Jamaica Pier

Last Thursday (May 26), chaos hit a Jamaican port in Falmouth when a cruise ship failed to moor properly and crashed into the pier.

Sister to the largest cruise ship in the world, Harmony of the Seas is a huge and luxurious cruise line that can accommodate over 6,400 passengers and boasts the world’s tallest slide at sea.

A video of the shocking accident shows the boat approaching the pier, or mooring the dolphin as it is officially called, and banging straight into it with a loud crash.

The incident happened at around 7am when the 227,000 tonne vessel crashed and damaged parts of the busy port.

Passengers heard screams in viral clip

Fortunately, there were no injuries and only cosmetic damage to the ship – but passengers can be heard screaming in terror in the background of the video.

As the boat approaches the pier, one person shouts “Oh my God” while another says “Holy shit” and a third adds: “We’re going to hit him”.

Vacationers continue to scream and watch in fear as the boat crashes into the pier with a thud.

However, the boat eventually docked and passengers were able to disembark and continue with their scheduled tours and activities for the day.

Tourism Minister Edmund Bartlett also said the crash was “caused by pilot error”, but this has not been confirmed and an investigation into the crash is ongoing.

Port Authority of Jamaica releases statement

Following the minor accident, the Port Authority of Jamaica issued a statement in which they stated that the vessel “collided with a dolphin”.

‘The minor incident did not result in significant damage to the vessel,’ the authority continued before revealing that the Duke of Alba was ‘misplaced’ and will require ‘reconstruction’.

“PAJ and Royal Caribbean are undertaking a joint investigation to determine the case for the incident,” they added.
