Carnival Legend Kicks of Next Sailing

The Spirit-class cruise ship has departed on her next voyage with no delay after a collision with the Carnival Glory in Cozumel, Mexico on Friday, December 20, 2019.

The vessel received some damage to her bow which was scrapes, dents and destroying the railings where the bell is located while she was docked at the time. It occurred when her fellow Carnival cruise ship smashed into her during maneuvering in Cozumel. The Carnival Glory came out with extensive damage which you can take a look at right here.

When the Carnival Legend arrived back into her homeport of Tampa on Sunday morning repairs started on the bow. Crew members worked on making sure the area had a new coat of paint and cosmetically still looked good. With the damage above the waterline, the Carnival ship has remained seaworthy.

From photos posted online, it also seems checks were made to make sure no other damage had been done. A diver can be seen on the pier and crew members are working on making the damaged area all shiny and new again. However, they’ll need more time to get all those dents sorted out.

Just in case you haven’t seen the moment the Carnival Legend was hit by Carnival Glory here is the moment it happened:

Carnival Legend is now beginning a 7-day Western Caribbean cruise out of the Port of Tampa, Florida. Port of calls includes Grand Cayman, Mahogany Bay, Belize, and Cozumel. This time she won’t be meeting the Carnival Glory in Cozumel!
