A fishing boat hit a cruise ship off the coast of Nantucket early Saturday morning, the U.S. Coast Guard said Sunday.

A spokesperson for the Coast Guard said that they received a call about the crash at about 2:25 a.m. Saturday morning. He said the Gabby G, a 92-foot fishing boat, hit a cruise ship called the Norwegian Pearl, which is owned and operated by Norwegian Cruise Lines.

A man aboard the fishing boat reported receiving minor cuts to his face as a result of the crash, but no other injuries were reported, the spokesperson said.

The Norwegian Pearl received minor scratches, and the Gabby G sustained more substantial damage, the spokesperson said. The Gabby G was able to sail back to New Bedford on its own.

The Norwegian Pearl continued its journey to the Bahamas after the crash.

It is unclear how the crash occurred.
