"Approaching with excessive speed at too steep of an angle caused Carnival Pride to strike the pier at Baltimore, resulting in more than $2m in damage, the National Transportation Safety Board found.

There were no injuries or pollution in the May 8, 2016, allision at Cruise Maryland's South Locust Point Terminal.

However, Carnival Pride's bow struck the pier and fendering, destroying an elevated passenger walkway. Three vehicles were damaged as the walkway collapsed, and the ship's hull and observation and mooring platform sustained minor damage.

Carnival Pride’s staff captain had the conn of the vessel and allowed it to approach the pier too fast and at an angle too steep. Upon recognizing the situation, he repeatedly attempted to shift to manual controls but was unable to do so at the bridge wing station."
