"While maneuvering alongside, for reasons that are currently still being duly investigated, the ship deviated from her course and grazed the end of the pier," spokesman for the cruise line told Fox News.
Crew members on the cruise line tried to stop the ship by throwing two anchors overboard just before the ship hit the dock, reported NPR.
But their efforts came too late as the ship ran aground.
While no injuries were reported, a part of the pier was destroyed in the incident that happened on Tuesday morning, ABC News reported.
