Saturday, 21 Dec, 2019

The 180,000 gross ton cruise ship was scheduled to begin service in late August 2020 but will now sail her first cruise revenue cruise on November 14, 2020.

Around 8:50 a.m., the Carnival Glory ocean liner was steering to dock when it made contact with the Carnival Legend vessel, "which was already alongside", according to a statement from Carnival.

Video footage from the scene captured the Carnival Glory hitting the Carnival Legend and causing damage.

Here is another angle of the cruise ship collision taken from the land.

A guest suffered a minor injury in the evacuation of a dining room. "License and insurance please!"

The Carnival Glory appeared to have sustained damage to its aft decks in the incident.

Eyewitness Matthew Bruin claimed the Glory also almost crashed into Royal Caribbean's Oasis of the Seas.

At least one person was injured as two Carnival cruise ships slowly collided into one other on Friday morning off the coast of the Mexican island of Cozumel. The company has said the seaworthiness of neither ship is in question, but advised guests to go ashore for the day.

Kristina Bryant of Fayetteville is on vacation and said it felt like an quake and a small part of the ship caught fire after the collision.

In response to questions on Twitter, Carnival tweeted that it is assessing the damage to both ships.

It said six guests came to the Glory's medical centre for evaluation for minor injuries.

Leave it to me to report the "cruise news".
