CARNIVAL Cruise Line said it is assessing the damage of Sat’s collision between Carnival Glory and Carnival Legend in Mexico, but that the incident had not impacted the seaworthiness of either ship.
As she was manoeuvring to dock, Glory collided with the already-docked Legend.
Carnival Cruise Line indicated one passenger aboard the notably larger Glory was injured, with the New York Times claiming as many as six were hurt in the collision in total.
MEANWHILE, the cruise line was also recently informed by the Meyer Turku shipbuilding company the delivery of Carnival Mardi Gras will be delayed until late Oct 2020.
Carnival is advising the first revenue sailings of the ship, originally scheduled for 31 Aug, will be pushed back to 14 Nov.
Those booked on now-cancelled sailings will receive 25% off a future cruise, in addition to the full refund of their cruise fare.
Guests will also be assisted with non-refundable airline and hotel reservations already booked.
