A cruise ship that was brought to San Francisco for repairs after catching fire during a voyage in November is in good shape and will depart for its next Mexican cruise on Friday, a port official said Wednesday.
A cruise ship that caught fire and stranded thousands of passengers for days in November was docked Monday in San Francisco for repairs.
Passengers aboard the stricken cruise ship Carnival Splendor, which sailed out of San Francisco in 2009 before repositioning to Long Beach, arrived in port Thursday after being pulled back to California.
Two tugboats slowly pulled a disabled cruise ship with nearly 4,500 passengers and crew toward San Diego on Wednesday evening.
UPDATE: A Coast Guard official says one of two tugboats tasked with pulling a disabled cruise ship to San Diego didn’t have enough power and was forced to turn back.
The Carnival Splendor was moving again Tuesday night after the first of several Mexican tugbouts en-route to the stricken liner began pulling it toward San Diego.
