CEO: Crippled ship is Carnival's worst accident

SAN DIEGO (AP) - November 10, 2010

Apologizing profusely, CEO Gerry Cahill told reporters in San Diego on Wednesday that the crew on Splendor is trying to make the best of the situation by providing free drinks at the bar and eight satellite phones so passengers can call their loved ones.

Cahill say the crew also is offering live music and games, and passengers can sleep out on the deck.

Two tugboats were slowly pulling the Splendor to San Diego. The ship was expected to arrive Thursday with good weather.
