Two cruise passengers suffered minor injuries when a freak wave struck the side of MSC Divina as she sailed in the Caribbean.
The wave hit the side of the ship at 23:40 local time on Thursday, damaging a small cabin porthole.
"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," said the cruise line.
MSC Divina was sailing from San Juan, Puerto Rico, to Nassau in the Bahamas when the incident happened.
"The safety and wellbeing of guests and crew are MSC Cruises' number one priority, and onboard technicians immediately sealed the damaged porthole," said the cruise line in a statement.
"As a further precaution, MSC Cruises has given alternative cabins to the guests from the affected cabin and those adjacent to it."
MSC Divina remained seaworthy and is continuing her itinerary, it added.
