Default Carnival Pride delayed in Long Beach

This was on our noon news. A small boat violated the safety zone of the Pride and it's hull had to be searched by USCG divers. Here's the only link I could find.

That is scary, but I have a feeling we will hear more of these as time goes on. Security has to be tight everywhere. I feel sorry for the passengers who had to wait, but glad they checked.

I found this:

The ship was delayed for two hours on Sunday after a "suspicious" boat was spotted near the ship. Crew members reported a 15- to 18-foot-long metal skiff loitering near the front end of the Carnival Pride at 11:30 a.m. Witnesses said the skiff had three men and one woman aboard, and was towing a small, bright orange inflatable dingy. One of the people aboard reportedly dove into the water near the pier's pilings and was observed by a witness pulling himself back into the boat. The vessel left the area before authorities arrived. The Port Operations Dive Group searched the pier and cruise ship hull but found nothing suspicious. The cruise ship departed at 6 p.m. Sunday.

IMO, this is TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE that a small craft could approach the Pride and "loiter" around it's bow. What was the LBPD, USCG, and Port Authority doing while this was going on? Head man from each department should be "walking the plank" over this. Remember the COLE?
