Carnival Coast Guard Incidents
Reply #1 on: May 27, 2012, 03:32:53 PM
This will be the official incident roll for Carnival Cruise Lines; but keep in mind, we want you to tell us your stories. For now, this roll of stories will be those incidents cited by the United States Coast Guard. That makes everything detailed here about as official as it gets!


Dateline: Tampa, Florida - March 27, 2012. The Carnival Legend was found to have a problem with its starboard stabilizer, which was leaking oil. The reason for the leak was unknown, but the USGC apparently let the Carnival Legend operate without a starboard stabilizer, until the technicians could fix the issue.


The official Coast Guard response was to issue a deadline date to repair the problem, which carnival missed by six days, according to the Maritime Information Exchange, at psix.uscg.mil. The deadline of April 25, 2012 was not met, but the USCG reports the Carnival Legend's starboard stabilizer issue was resolved on May 1, 2012.


At the same time - it was two days after the stabilizer issue was first cited - the USCG issued a pollution enforcement warning, but no other safety warning appears to have been issued in connection with the oil leak.


The stabilizer problem is a curious development for the Carnival Legend, because according to the website, cleanupflorida.com, the Carnival Legend has had issues with pitch, yaw and roll instability in the past. Specifically, the website owner, Billy Kidwell, points to an incident in which the Carnival Legend "suddenly tilted 14 degrees to the port side, while turning starboard."


While the incident detailed on Mr. Kidwell's site is a few years old, having happened in 2005, the fact the ship rolled to port while making a starboard turn is no small coincidence, considering the recent U.S. Coast Guard issue with the Carnival Legend.


We are going to put on our reporter's cap for this one to learn whether other Carnival ships are having the same issues with stabilizers, whether those stabilizers are primarily starboard stabilizers, and to find out whether the Legend has suffered other issues like this. As we used to say on the air, "Stay tuned!"
