The Disney Dream cruise ship was sailing into the port of Nassau when it hit a metal pier
The Disney Dream cruise ship was sailing into the port of Nassau at the weekend when it hit an obstacle.
Scott Lewitt has his camera rolling as the Disney Cruise Line vessel glided towards a metal pier in the bright blue water.
The ship collided with the pier, making a loud crushing sound as it did so.
Behind the camera Scott could be heard saying: “I knew that was going to happen. Holy f*** around.

“Maybe they ought to hire me to drive that boat.”
After making contact with the pier, the ship moved backwards, revealing the damage it had incurred.
As it did so, Scott said: “Bet you somebody gets fired over that (laughs). Holy mother.
“Apparently Goofy’s driving the boat today.”

Though the damage appeared minimal, a dented hull was visible from where the crash had occurred.
None of the ship’s passenger facilities, nor the itinerary, were affected as a result of the collision.
It’s believed the cruise ship was on a three night voyage out of Port Canaveral, stopping over at Nassau as well as Disney’s private island Castaway Cay.
The 4,000-passenger ship, along with its sister vessel Disney Fantasy, are both based at Port Canaveral.

Express.co.uk has contacted Disney Cruise Line for comment.
Earlier this year Disney announced it would be adding a new ship to its fleet, in response to overwhelming customer demand.
The new vessel will be ready by 2022, and adds to an existing order of two cruise ships due in 2021 and 2023.
All three luxury liners will be built at Meyer Werft shipyard in Germany.
