Three passengers have been injured when a “freak wave” struck the side of MSC Divina.

In a statement, MSC Cruises said the accident happened at 11:40 p.m. local time on November 26 (Thursday) as the ship was sailing from San Juan, Puerto Rico to Nassau, Bahamas.


The incident damaged a cabin porthole. The statement said:

“One of two Mexican guests staying in the cabin sustained minor abrasions, while an Argentinean guest in another cabin slightly injured a finger when closing a balcony door.

The safety and wellbeing of guests and crew are MSC Cruises’ number one priority, and onboard technicians immediately sealed the damaged porthole. As a further precaution, MSC Cruises has given alternative cabins to the guests from the affected cabin and those adjacent to it.”

The line announced the ship will continue on the scheduled itinerary.
