Carnival Cruise Lines announced that march 2013, they will reposition the Carnival Miracle to the West Coast while the Carnival Splendor goes the other way to New York.

I promised no more Splendor drama, but this is BIG news. The ship will be laid up until the next year, while they investigate, repair, and then inspect the damage done below the waterline. The original plan called for her to miss the cruise she would be on now, but be repaired in time for [...]
I promise this will be the last post about the Splendor fire. Some reactions from various passengers and so called experts were too funny to pass up. Take this one for instance: Carnival Cruise Lines Insider is more than likely a laid off crewmember from the hotel department. He claims to know what actually happened [...]
With the assistance of 4 tugs, she is now moored alongside San Diego. ______ Splendor is st passing the jetty and should be docked shortly. I am having an awfully hard time finding a webcam that works. This post will be updated when she arrived.
CNN (Make sure to unblock the popup) CNN has a live video of the Splendor. She should be docked early afternoon [local time] in San Diego. UPDATE: And CNN took it down. I’ll see if I can dig up another feed.
