Carnival Splendor now docked at P35

Filed under: news,photographs,ships — Tags: , , — Towse @ 4:11 pm

The Carnival Splendor, she of the ill-fated Mexican cruise last fall, has been in dry-dock at P70 since 31Jan for needed engine repairs.

Three weeks and $8-$9m later, the repairs appear to be complete as the ship moved from P70 to P35 today for final work before it heads off on its next cruise.

Congrats to the folks at BAE Systems for finishing the huge project.

  1. Ahhhh…. Carnival. My in-laws took us a cruise a few years ago. Since then I always think of these things as floating vomitoriums. We all, everybody, ate and ate and ate. Thank the gods I don’t drink. Those cruises are the modern version of a Roman gorge fest. Plus the sewer system wasn’t working properly so, for the whole cruise, half the boat smelled like shit.
