How did this happen?

On Friday, the 20th of December, the very unusual event of a cruise ship collision occurred when two Carnival Cruise Ships collided at a port in the Mexican island of Cozumel. The ship called Carnival Legend was already at bay, docked by the port, when Carnival Glory rammed into its stern. 

According to the two ships’ shared cruise operator Carnival Corp, which also happens to be the largest cruise operator in the world, the collision resulted in no fatalities and only minor injuries for six of the passengers/crew on board Carnival Glory.

The collision did, however, cause major damages to Carnival Glory, which includes but is not limited to a downward bent stern (at an approximately 45-degree-angle) and a broken ship interior at the area of the ship where the contact between the ships was made.

The event was shocking for not only the people on board the ships but also for the by-passers on land who stopped amid their activity to view the enormous 3000-passenger cruise vehicles come so close as to make contact with one another. Shrieks and exclaims were heard once the collision struck with the loud sound created by the clash’s harsh sounds.
