“Today as Norwegian Epic was maneuvering into Port of San Juan, Puerto Rico with a local pilot on board & the help of two tug boats, prevailing winds caused the ship to veer towards the pier, damaging two mooring points at Pier 3 East,” the tweet said.

The cruise line said no injuries were reported and that guests disembarked the ship.

“We are working closely with local authorities to assess the damage,” the cruise line said.
