Passengers injured as two Carnival ships collide

Carnival Corp is assessing damage caused to two of its cruise ships, after one collided with the other off the coast of Cozumel, Mexico.

Six people were injured in the accident, which happened during rough sea conditions.

The 3,000-passenger Carnival Glory was moving into port when it hit the 2,000-passenger Carnival Legend at 8.30am local time on Friday.

Carnival said in a statement: "Carnival Glory was manoeuvring to dock when it made contact with Carnival Legend which was already alongside.

"We are assessing the damage but there are no issues that impact the seaworthiness of either ship."

Carnival Glory's captain, Pero Grubjesic, said in a letter to passengers: "The ship has been inspected by required authorities and there are no issues that impact our ability to sail safely back to New Orleans,"

Carnival called the incident an 'allision', a nautical term describing a moving ship colliding with a stationary object.
