Travel Daily - - Contents -

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.
