Two huge cruise ships recently ran into each other. This is not a joke, although the punchline would be funny. I don’t like to name cruise lines, so I’ll let you figure it out.
The ships were from the SAME cruise line. One that has mega-dozens of ships sailing. Their Captains are among the best in the industry. In this VIDEO you are going to see their worst nightmare.
On the 20th of December 2019, the ships were off Cozumel, Mexico maneuvering. Cozumel is located on the eastern side of Mexico and is just a short ferry ride from Cancun. Cozumel is really laid back without the glitter of Cancun. I have scuba dived there. The people are friendly and the Mexican food authentic. It has not been bothered by the drug cartel battles as many other cities have.
Eight ships from various cruise lines were scheduled to dock at the Port of Cozumel on Friday.
A pilot was at the control of the ship at the stern of the other – backing out. Pilots “drive” ships in/out of harbors because they know the waters hidden obstacles, shallow reefs and are supposed to do things perfectly. The Captain is not in control. Then SCRAAAPE!!!
Ooops! Six people were injured – minor issues.
Q – was this a filming of a Farmers’ Insurance ad? Or one with Allstate’s Mr. Mahem? Anyway, it’s sad.
Let us help you get a free cruise for two by giving lectures. It’s a slam dunk EZ peezy.
