Two ships from the Cornucopia Cruise Line reportedly collided this evening as one attempted to dock, plowing into the other one and damage it and the Pier on Hoboken’s Waterfront.
The Destiny, a 115-foot wedding yacht, crashed into the 117-foot Sundancer, the line’s newest vessel, as it was moored at Pier 14. Unconfirmed reports indicate the Destiny made a second attempt to dock after the initial collision, but smashed into the Sundancer yet again.
