Default video of Splendor docking

CBS 8 Live Stream Player - San Diego, California News Station - KFMB Channel 8 - cbs8.com

This vodeo shows Splendor being pushed to the dock by tugs. Interesting how much the ship listed while being pushed.

I watched a webcam that is pointed to the harbor, so I did not notice the listing but it was something to watch. So glad that Carnival decided to bring the ship to San Deigo instead of Mexico, even though it was a bit longer to do so, so much easier on the passengers once they arrived.

I have since read that Carnival is going to put up the crew in motels and give them a per deim for food while there is the work being done. And they are paying them their salary plus those that would have gotten tips are being given them by Carnival.

All around Carnival is being more than fair to all involved.

If they get the power restored soon enough I bet you they put the crew back on the ship instead of paying for motels.

When I worked for Holland America I spent 10 days in Lisbon during drydock - and there were a couple of days with no air or lights (I think they came back on at night)

But yeah, the crew worked the a**es off during this mess. They deserve to be paid well. They had to form human chains to get the food up to deck nine, clean up after over-flowed toilets, etc.

My interview (see page one) says the crew performed amazingly - she even tipped them when she left!

My local radio station had interviews with several passengers all of whom said they can't wait for their next cruise even those booked with Carnival .
