Carnival ships collide, almost hit Oasis

Recommended Posts

Even with these videos and different angles it's hard to tell what exactly he was trying to do?  He wasn't pulling into the dock between Oasis and Legend, so why so close to them?

As I'm not familiar with any of the Carnival ships, does anyone know what is on those aft decks that were damaged? (Walkways, suites, dining room?)

we went on Carnival Liberty and if I remember right on that ship that area was a dining room and I think there was a venue back there too, for comedy shows...not sure if these ships are set up in a similar way

From the deck plans I found online, it looks like the Platinum Restaurant is where the damage is.

Scary part is they had breakfast service going on at the time. Report from Carnival on Twitter stated a minor injury due to the evacuation of the restaurant.

Yep, it looked like it was the whole corner of the MDR on 2 levels !!  So glad to hear that nobody was seriously injured.

The view from Oasis was really the best one.  It doesn't look like Legend took any real damage at all.  Probably just some paint.

Two Carnival cruise ships just collided in Cozumel, Mexico

Atlanta (CNN Business)The Carnival Glory and Carnival Legend collided Friday morning while at port in Cozumel, Mexico, leaving one passenger injured.

Eyewitness video of the aftermath shows a portion of the Carnival Glory's deck was left crushed after the crash.
"We are assessing the damage but there are no issues that impact the seaworthiness of either ship," Carnival Cruises' told CNN in a statement.
Carnival (CCL) describes the incident as an allision between the two ships. An allision is a nautical term used to describe when a moving ship collides with a stationary object,such as another ship. The Carnival Glory was "maneuvering to dock," and hit the Carnival Legend, which was already docked, the cruise line said.
 
One guest sustained a minor injury as guests were being evacuated from the dining room on decks 3 and 4, according to the company.
It does not appear the either cruise liner's itinerary will be affected by the crash, as Carnival says they've told guests to enjoy their day ashore.
"The crash wasn't too bad," Carnival Legend passenger Mary Anne McKinley told CNN. "Just felt like a big wave crashing into the ship."
Carnival Glory passenger Maddison Haynes described the crash similarly.
 
Some of the Carnival Glory decks were crushed in the collision.

"Last night we experienced some major motion on the boat so this morning we assumed something similar was happening," Haynes told CNN. "We felt a jolt and didn't really think anything of it."
McKinley says an on-board announcement after the crash said the currents caused the crash. Carnival Glory passenger Maddison Haynes told CNN an on-board announcement said high winds were a factor.
