The Verdict Is In

Think back, if you will, to the morning of May 8, 2016. Carnival Pride had sailed trouble-free through Chesapeake Bay toward Baltimore, and glided right into the port. As it approached the pier, things began to go wrong, and the ship's bow struck the pier and fendering. It then struck the passenger boarding bridge, destroying it when it fell over, slightly damaging three vehicles parked under it.

After ten months of investigation, the National Transportation Safety Board released their findings today.

Details appeared in the March 7 edition of Cruise News Daily.
