Stranded Cruise Ship: Carnival Splendor Heads Toward Ensenada
Carnival Splendor: Cruise Ship No Longer Stranded
After an engine fire stranded the Carnival Splendor cruise ship off the coast of Ensenada, supplies have been flown in by US military helicopters to make repairs to the ship and keep the passengers fed.
The Carnival Splendor is now slowly making its way to Ensenada, where it will dock at some time on November 11.
The Coast Guard cutter Morgenthau, a high-endurance cutter based out of Alameda, is shadowing the 952-foot Splendor on the voyage for safety. The fire knocked out the air conditioning, telephone and hot food service for the more than 4,000 passengers and crew members.
