Cruise Ship Strikes Pier in NYC

For the second time in less than a year, a pier in New York City has been struck by a cruise ship. The Norwegian Spirit struck the pier damaging the beams that support it. Officials say that there was no one hurt and no risk of collapse from the accident. Carnival had a similar accident with the Carnival Victory last summer that caused more damage to the nose of the ship than it did to the pier.

Did they say what was the cause of the ship having to hit the pier?

Sorry for the delay in responding. I did not find the cause unlike last summer when it was anounced that it was a misjudgement on the Captains part.
