Two Carnival cruise ships collided off the coast of Mexico Friday morning in a jarring incident that left at least six passengers injured.
The Carnival Glory and the Carnival Legend had an allision while near a port in Cozumel, the company confirmed in a statement.
"Carnival Glory was maneuvering to dock when it made contact with Carnival Legend which was already alongside," the cruise liner said. "We are assessing the damage but there are no issues that impact the seaworthiness of either ship. We have advised guests from both ships to enjoy their day ashore in Cozumel."
Photos of the vessels shared on Twitter reveal certain damage to the Carnival Glory.

Carnival originally said one passenger sustained "minor" injuries while evacuating the dining room on decks three and four of the Carnival Glory. That number later grew after five more guests with minor injuries "presented themselves to the Carnival Glory medical center for evaluation," bringing the total to six, NBC News reports.
The Carnival Glory is 952 feet long and can hold 2,980 passengers at capacity, with 1,150 crew members on board, according to the company's website. The Carnival Legend is a mildly bigger ship at 963 feet long. It can hold 2,124 passengers at capacity, with 930 crew members on board.
Despite damage sustained in the collision, the Glory is currently continuing its scheduled 7-day Western Caribbean cruise, which is set to arrive back at its origin port in New Orleans, La., on Dec. 22, according to Cruise Mapper.
The Legend is continuing a similar 7-day Western Caribbean cruise and is set to arrive back in Tampa, Fla., on Dec. 22.
