EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS: Grandeur of the Sea Hull Damage

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I just received these photos in an email from a fellow cruiser. Looks like the reports are true....there is a huge gaping hole in the hull of the Grandeur of the Seas, a Royal Caribbean ship. This "hole" has been measured to be approximately 45 feet long by 6 feet wide. I've been told by numerous sources that the Mexican police (the ship is currently docked in Costa Maya, where it "crashed" into the dock) are forbidding people from taking pictures.....Probably under the order of Royal Caribbean, who's trying to keep this under the rug. People who have been spotted trying to take pictures have been whisked away, with their camera lenses being covered by Mexican authorities. There are even reports that the Mexican police are armed with M16's, guarding the damage of the hull, from any further picture-taking. Another report I've received is that the Captain of the ship claimed the 15 knot winds and 3 knot headwind were responsible for this incident.

Thanks for the photos, Jason. A little frightening. I was just there last week.

:huh: My sister's family is cruising on this ship...Any more details? She left a message on my machine telling the same story as RC as said, but said she didn't think they'd be home before late sunday night.

Hi nyteven...

Welcome to Cruise Crazies!

Dan has some information from RCCL's website on the post "Grandeur of the Sea crashes." Hope all works out for your sister and family!

Guess the ships don't have the bumpers like we have on our boat?

Or the rubber tires around the dock?

Was it a wave like some say?

I would like to know who will be blamed for this....sorry dad I dinged the car....oops!
