Carnival officials said crews were evaluating the damage to the ships, but expected both to remain in service.
In a statement issued after the accident, the cruise line said, “Carnival Glory was maneuvering to dock when it made contact with Carnival Legend which was already alongside. We are assessing the damage but there are no issues that impact the seaworthiness of either ship,” carnival said in a statement. “We have advised guests from both ships to enjoy their day ashore in Cozumel."
