Cruise ships col­lide at Cozumel re­sort

Antelope Valley Press - - Second Front -

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.
