Several dozen passengers on a Carnival cruise ship Wednesday were injured when the vessel made a sudden turn to avoid an object in the water.
Carnival says the incident occurred Wednesday afternoon on the 2,052-passenger Carnival Ecstasy, which was sailing in the Gulf of Mexico on the final leg of a five-day cruise out of Galveston, Texas. The line says the ship was forced to perform an unusually sharp maneuver to avoid a large buoy that was adrift and mostly submerged, preventing it from being detected the ship's radar. The maneuver resulted in the ship listing notably to port.
