Carnival Cruise Line responded to the video on Twitter with a statement addressing the crash and one reported injury.

“Look at the damage done to the Carnival Glory after it ran into another ship,” reads the caption.

According to cruisefever.net, high winds appeared to be a contributing factor in the collision.

The extent of the damage isn’t currently known. According to the vacation publication, the Carnival Glory is on a seven-night cruise to the Western Caribbean out of New Orleans.

The Carnival Legend is also on a week-long cruise to the same area from Tampa, Fla.

This is a developing story. We will update as information becomes available.
