Cruise ships collide at Cozumel resort
MEXICO CITY — A cruise ship scraped another while trying to dock in the Mexican Caribbean resort of Cozumel on Friday, damaging at least one of the boats and resulting in minor injuries to six passengers.
Carnival Cruise Line said in a statement that the Carnival Glory was maneuvering in the port when it “made contact” with the Carnival Legend in the morning.
Videos shot by startled passengers and posted on social media showed the noisy, slow-moving accident, which left part of the Glory visibly mangled at the stern.
The cruise line said it was assessing the damage, but there were “no issues that impact the seaworthiness of either ship.” It said six guests came to the Glory’s medical center for evaluation for minor injuries.
