I've been informed of some problems on the current cruise of the Carnival Splendor.

1. In Puerta Vallarta the Splendor had a minor collision with the Radiance Of The Seas. This dented the RCI ship and damaged some rails on the Splendor.

2. Yesterday (a couple days after the collision) the Captain of the Splendor had a heart attack and was transferred to a hospital in Cabo San Lucas. It appears the Staff Captain assumed command. No word on the other Captain's condition.

3. As a result of the medical evacuation the ship left port late and is not due in to Los Angeles until 1pm local time. Boarding for the next cruise will commence at approximately 5pm this afternoon.
