Celebrity Infinity crashes into the pier

The Celebrity Cruises cruise ship Celebrity Infinity ran into a little bit of trouble pulling up to a pier in Ketchikan, Alaska on Friday afternoon.

Video of the incident posted online shows the ship approaching the #3 berth at the Ketchikan cruise ship dock before crashing into the pier almost in slow motion, but hard enough to cause visual damage to the ship and what looks like major damage to the pier.

Weather on scene was reported to be gusting at 45-miles per hour when the incident occurred.

The U.S. Coast Guard said it was alerted to the accident on Friday afternoon by the ship’s pilot. No injuries or pollution have been reported.

“The Coast Guard is grateful no one was injured as a result of this accident,” said Lt. Dianna Robinson, command duty officer at Sector Juneau.  “Our personnel are working to determine the cause of this accident and will work with local partners to ensure the continued safety of those using the cruise ship docks.”
