This wasn't Pinar Del Rio's first encounter with a harbour entrance breakwater.
From June 9th 2018:
"Fast catamaran ferry PINAR DEL RIO ran aground on rocks at around 1530 UTC Jun 8 at San Antonio Harbor entrance, Ibiza, Balearic Archipelago. Ferry arrived from Denia and was to dock at San Antonio Ferry Terminal. No injures reported, 181 passengers were evacuated."

I see the term Allided (of U.S. origin?) is now used instead of collided, which was always used in such cir***stances in my time at sea and as Marine Surveyor.
