Zenith Damages Reef While Anchored at Cayman

Sometimes you can do all the right things and still end up in trouble. That’s Pullmantur’s situation in the Cayman Islands after Tuesday’s incident with Zenith.

While anchored at Grand Cayman, Zenith’s anchor chain caused significant damage to a coral reef, and it was reported and documented on video by a local diver.

Pullmantur and its parent, Royal Caribbean Cruises, are taking heat for the incident in the media and the court of public opinion, but it appears that the ship was anchored where it was supposed to be in a designated anchorage.

Details appeared in the December 10 edition of Cruise News Daily.
