Um, isn't that ship getting a little close?

From the Enchantment of the seas. OK, so we're sitting in port. A few of us are on the pool deck watching the Carnival Legend pull out of port. As we're watching it, it's getting closer and closer. It looked like the wind was pushing the other ship toward us. I looked down and saw a tug boat try to get between the two boats, but it was too late. Then the collision became inevitable. There was some crunching and breaking glass noises and the ship rocked to one side a little. It was such a slow crash that it was barely noticeable. We could see scraped paint on the other ship, Really, nobody was hurt and we're waiting for the all-clear from the Harbor master to leave port.

Never a dull moment.

OMG They linked to and quoted Bob's blog entry there!! You're even more famous now, Bob!

Eek! Hope the rest of the trip goes more smoothly than that! 0_o

holy phuckballs, Batman! I'm still jealous I'm not on the broken boat. :( Have a little "Soup" for me... *sigh*

A tugboat tried to get between the two ships? That could have been disastrous.....

Glad to hear all are okay!

Thinking about it more, it probably was one of the harbor pilot boats, not a tug. It was a tough viewing angle. I was looking down and to the left into the gap between the boats.

Cruise Ship Colides

Just had a co worker come back in today. She was on the Legend. She said it was quite the experience. She cruises all the time. That was the first time that ever happened to here

We were on the Legend. At least we had a little excitement and nobody got hurt :p

bumped ship

i cannot believe how close those ships dock to each other! I am not surprised to hear they bumped. A little bump like this would never deter me from cruising. I love it! B.
