Default UPDATE: Carnival Legend and Enchantment OTS Fender Bender

Carnival Legend had a little accident backing out of Cozumel today; it hit RCCL's Enchantment of the Seas on the way out according to USA Today and various other sources. Still trying to hunt down a pic of the damage, but from the reports, glass and exterior damage were the maximum extent of it. No one was hurt.

Oops.

Edit: Pictures are now available - http://www.usatoday.com/travel/cruis...=68500121.blog

It appears the Legend took quite a hit, a 50 yard stretch along the port side.

And about 3 months after I was on Legend's sister ship, Miracle, out of New York. And how the past few weeks my professor has been using Enchantment as an example of a ship that was Jumbo-ized, and how after a ship is jumbo-ized they need to recalculate the hydrostatic properties.

Here's a video of the collision, sort of. It's not very long but it gives the general idea of what happened.

Now that I watch the video, Enchantment could have turned on her thrusters and it may have helped avoid the collision, but then again, no one was expecting the Legend to slip to the right

I believe both ships may have been repaired already. The damage was the equivalent of a fender bender in a car; nothing too serious.
