Default Carnival Splendor "Update"

sort of.

On January 21, Carnival Splendor departed San Diego where it had been docked while undergoing repairs. From there, the ship sailed to San Francisco to a drydock facility where the remainder of the repairs are being completed. Work is continuing on schedule and the ship is expected to re-enter service on February 20, 2011, as previously announced.

John said he had some amazing photos of the damage etc that he won't share until after she is back in service, and probably when CCL legal tells him he can.

Is there any indication of a formal investigation by the feds that might yield a detailed report eventually?

The Feds have no jurisdiction.

Panama is in charge of the investigation, but they are allowing NTSB and Coast Guard to participate.

I would expect a year or more.

The Splendor is here in San Francisco, at pier #70 and its being worked on around the clock. When they are finished it will be better than new.

NTSB & USCG are what I was thinking as "the Feds".

Ok. They are not responsible for the investigation, so I don't know that they ever will release an official report, but are assisting.

I was surprised yesterday at the Carnival website to find that the Splendor's first Mexican Riviera trip listed for booking is the Feb 27th cruise. They've been stating in the media that the Splendor will resume cruises on Feb 20.

Is that initial trip fully booked? Is Carnival creating some wiggle room for last-minute delays? Is the Feb 20th cruise still on?

They had info posted for the 20th when I checked a few days ago. Looks like they have taken that down and are showing the 27th as the first available sailing date.

Dunno, but I did see this:

Carnival Splendor returns to Port of Long Beach February 19th - Los Angeles Active Seniors Travel | Examiner.com


LONG BEACH, CA. - Carnival Cruise Lines announced today that the Carnival Splendor will be arriving back to its home port of Long Beach, California by February 19, 2011.
The Splendor experienced an engine fire last November while on a voyage to the Mexican Riviera. The ship remained afloat and crippled for over 4 days at sea while tug boats scrambled to tow it back to San Diego for debarkation.
The cruise ship is currently being repaired at dry dock in San Francisco, California and will make its voyage back into service near Los Angeles to commmence it's 2011 itinerary.
"We are excited to have the Carnival Splendor back in service to provide our west coast product," announced Vicki Tomasino, Vice President of Sales, Western Region. An event will be planned pierside Saturday evening February 19th to welcome the cruise ship back to Long Beach. "We will be inviting our travel partners, business associates, CVB and Chamber of Commerce from Long Beach and San Diego. Additionally, invitations will be extended to those involved in the ship's rescue, such as the US Coast Guard and officials from the Port of Long Beach and Port of San Diego," added Tomasino.
Carnival is “The World’s Most Popular Cruise Line®,” with 22 “Fun Ships” operating three- to 16-day voyages to The Bahamas, Caribbean, Mexican Riviera, Alaska, Hawaii, Panama Canal, Canada, New England, Bermuda, Europe, the Pacific Islands and New Zealand. The line currently has two new 130,000-ton ships on order – Carnival Magic, set to debut in Europe May 1, 2011, and Carnival Breeze, scheduled to enter service in spring 2012.

Definitely good news. I would love to see pictures of the damage and repair work. Just wonder if they would ever get posted somewhere.
