Carnival's stranded cruise ship

Image 6 of 14


Thom Burke, commanding officer of the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan, coordinates with Coast Guard units to assist the Carnival cruise ship Splendor with replenishment of needed food and medical supplies off the coast of San Diego on Nov. 9. After two days adrift, the ship began moving again on Nov. 9 when the first of several Mexican tugboats arrived. Rocking gently with the waves, the ship moved slowly with a Coast Guard boat along one side and the USS Ronald Reagan aircraft carrier on the other.
