A freak wave hit the MSC Divina on Thursday evening and two passengers were not seriously injured.

The freak wave hit the side of the MSC cruise ship late on Thursday night injuring 2 passengers. There was only a little damage to one of the cabins which had a porthole. As a result guests who were staying in the cabin and in nearby cabins were provided alternative rooms.

Travelmole reports that the wave hit at around 11:40 PM and in statement given to the site the cruise line said “One of two Mexican guests staying in the cabin sustained minor abrasions, while an Argentinean guest in another cabin slightly injured a finger when closing a balcony door,” MSC Cruises also said “The safety and wellbeing of guests and crew are MSC Cruises’ number one priority, and onboard technicians immediately sealed the damaged porthole,”

At the time the wave struck the 139,000 gross ton vessel was sailing from San Juan, Puerto Rico to Nassau, Bahamas as part of a 7-night Western Caribbean cruise. The cruise departed Miami, Florida on November 21 and arrived back on November 28 on schedule.

MSC Divina recently made its return to sailing out of Miami earlier in November and is part of the European cruise lines North American expansion plans. The ship can carry 3,500 passengers at double occupancy and is one of the largest ships in the fleet.
