Disney Dream, shown above, had a bit of a fender bender with a Nassau berth on Saturday, while attempting to dock.

On Saturday, Disney Dream had a fender bender while docking at Nassau, the Bahamas. The Disney Cruise Line ship was apparently maneuvering into the berth when its stern made contact, leaving a large dent visible aft. 

Guests took to social media to post shots of the indentation, which was above the water line. Travel Agent has reached out to the cruise line for comment on the incident. 

Disney Dream was operating a three-night cruise to the Bahamas when the incident occurred. The ship departed Port Canaveral on Friday and the schedule included visits to Nassau and Castaway Cay, before a return to Port Canaveral this morning.

Another four-night Bahamas cruise on Disney Dream is set to depart today. We'll post any Disney statement here as soon as it's received. 

Separately, Disney Cruise Line on Saturday adapted the schedules for Disney Fantasy, based on hurricane recovery efforts in the eastern Caribbean

  • Disney Fantasy - October 7 and October 21 Sailings: These eastern Caribbean sailings are being shifted to a more westerly itinerary. The new port line-up includes Cozumel, Mexico; George Town, Grand Cayman; Falmouth, Jamaica; and Castaway Cay, the Bahamas.
  • Disney Fantasy - November 4 Sailing: This sailing is being modified to include ports of call in the western Caribbean. This revised sailing will now visit Cozumel, Mexico; Costa Maya, Mexico; George Town, Grand Cayman; and Castaway Cay.

Disney Cruise Line also said this: "Please know that further changes may be needed as the Caribbean islands continue to recover from the impacts of Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria. We will notify guests should additional changes be necessary."
