    A Carnival cruise ship crashed into a dock on the west side of Manhattan, leaving the structure with some damage but causing no injuries, officials said.

    The Carnival Horizon ship was arriving at Pier 90, at West 50th Street past the West Side Highway, just before 5:50 a.m. Tuesday when it smacked into the dock, damaging two metal support beams and part of a parking level above, the FDNY and a spokesman for the city’s Department of Buildings said.

    No one was injured and "impact to the bow of the ship was minor," a spokesman for Carnival said. 

    Passengers were able to disembark the ship without any issue and the incident wasn't expected to impact the ship's sailing schedule, he added. 

    Terminal operator Ports America was planning to bring in contractors to repair the damage, DOB's spokesman said.

    The Coast Guard says it is also investigating.
