How on earth does this sort of thing even happen?  It makes you wonder what sort of captains Carnival employ.

Ships bash into onbe another and the surrounding scenery all the time. Most of it just goes unreported.

People collide in cars all the time and a cruise ship is a lot slower on the brakes and steering than a car.  Ship happens!

I have a similar thought on most days i.e. "If they really did hold interviews for the job you got then WTF were the rest like??"
Yet another one of life's many mysteries......

 Probably both late in their schedule to get the holidaymakers to their next lifetime experience.

For ship captains, perhaps more than most other jobs, one ah shi... wipes out 100 attaboys.   O0


And the high number of quick replies to this thread also proves that the worse the captain screws up, the more critics are watching (and recording).  <:(

A 1000 rolls of Gaffa tape later and we're good to go!








On December 20, 2019 while maneuvering to dock in Cozumel, Carnival Glory collided with the stationary ship Carnival Legend which was already alongside.
Six passengers on board Carnival Glory sustained minor injuries.
