Passengers Injured on Galveston-Based Cruise Ship

More than 60 passengers were injured after being thrown around during a sharp turn by the Carnival Cruise Lines ship Ecstasy near Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula.

Miami-based Carnival, claims, minor damage was limited to some merchandise and unsecured objects.

Carnival claims the maneuver, resulting in the ship listing to the port side, was meant to avoid a large buoy that was adrift and mostly submerged.
