Damage was sustained to both the ship and the pier but thankfully no injuries were reported. A spokesman for the US Coast Guard, Lt. Dianna Robinson, command duty officer at Sector Juneau stated:

“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.”
