In an email to Anadolu Agency, Carnival said there was no serious damage to the ships and that it was believed to be caused by “spontaneous wind gusts and strong currents.” At least six people have reported minor injuries.

Video on social media showed Carnival Glory attempting to dock when it collided with Carnival Legend, which was stationary. Glory ship almost hit another cruise ship, Oasis of the Seas.

The crash reportedly will not affect the ships’ itineraries.

“We have advised guests from both ships to enjoy their day ashore in Cozumel,” Carnival said.

Carnival controls about 50% of the global market, according to 2019 corporate data. The cruise line had record revenues worth $20.8 billion.
