Regent Seven Seas Voyager - Rhodes Docking Mishap UPDATED

It is reported today that Regent Seven Seas Voyager hit the dock in Rhodes, Greece today.  From the limited information I have, it seems that there is 5 foot (3.5 meter) dent in the hull.  As is standard operating procedure, the ship will not be able to sail until the classification society inspects and approves the ship's sailing or recommends repairs to be made prior to departure. 

The ship apparently hit the dock while coming into port.  The damage was, obviously, minor as the ship was able to depart on time and is continuing its cruise apparently without any changes.
