"All the cranes collapsed. Big, big, big, big, big, big disaster," the narrator says.

Eight people received non-life-threatening injuries from the incident, according to the Miami television station WSVN.  No passengers were reportedly on the ship at the time of the incident, as the ship was not in service.

"We are aware of damage to the dock structure and to construction cranes," a Royal Caribbean representative told WSVN. "We are assessing damage to the ship."

Royal Caribbean did not immediately respond to Business Insider's request for comment.
