MSC Armonia arrived in Roatan this morning and hit the pier.  The pier sustained some damage while the ship received minor damage.  The vessel was cleared to sail later in the day.  A video was posted on Facebook showing the cruise ship arriving in port and hitting the pier.

The ship appeared to have a technical issue which caused the vessel to not slow down when approaching the pier. The video shows the ship’s anchors were already lowered in an attempt to slow down the ship.

You can watch a video of the ship hitting the pier below:

MSC Armonia is currently on a 14 night cruise to the Caribbean out of Havana, Cuba.
