No one was injured during the accident and "impact to the bow of the ship was minor," according to a spokesman for Carnival. 

All passengers were able to disembark the vessel without any issue and the accident was not expected to impact the sailing schedule of the liner. 

DOB's spokesman said that terminal operator Ports America would bring in contractors to repair the damage.

The Coast Guard said it was also investigating.

Carnival Horizon was sailing back to NYC following an 8-day round-trip Eastern Caribbean cruise.
