Disney Dream Suffers Hull Damage Docking in the Bahamas this Morning

The stern area of the Disney Dream cruise ship suffered a large dent in its hull while docking in Nassau, Bahamas this morning. The ship was back into the dock when the collision took place. No reports of injuries and all the damage looks to be above the water line.

Those on board the Disney Dream report that the cruise is underway and everything seems to be running as normal. The ship is in the middle of a 3-night cruise and expected to stop in Disney’s private island Castaway Cay tomorrow.

Its possible repairs could be made in the course of normal operations. From other online reports, it looks like they already made some repairs while at Nassau. I guess if you’re going to damage your ship’s hull, the stern above the water line is where you want it to be. But we’re not experts in mega-sized ship repairs. Anyone out there have a more expert opinion than us?
