The unfortunate incident took place on Friday, December 20, when the Carnival Glory ship slammed into the stationary Carnival Legend as it tried to dock in Cozumel.
Carnival Cruises described the incident as an ‘allision’ – a nautical term used to describe a situation in which a moving ship collides with a stationary object.
The cruise line advertises itself as being all about fun, and it seems the company wasn’t going to let a crash kill its vibe as staff told the passengers to enjoy their day ashore in Cozumel before returning to the ship.
In the evening following the incident, the Carnival Glory set sail from Cozumel back to its homeport in New Orleans. The cruise line provided passengers with $100 onboard credit, per room, in an attempt to make up for the incident.
