Live aboard the Splendor, which has had yet another collision in Mexico - this time with a pier jetty - We're sitting here for a second day in Puerto Vallarta, because the repairs are 'taking a little longer than anticipated'. We decided to see what Splendor had hit - see links below, since the photos are too large:

We're off to see if we can get photos of the damage to Splendor, since a picture is worth a thousand words.

of course the repairs are taking a little longer than anticipated, they are trying to figure out how to remove the part of the dock from the side of the ship.

In the first letter from the captian he said it was a little damage,

I would hate to see what he call a lot of damage!

I wonder if when they hit he yelled "Gilligannnn"

I want to see pictures of the ship, too!

The youtube video of the Legend hitting the RCL ship was amazing to watch. I hope someone is uploading Splendor pics now.

But the question is ... did the pier offer to pull out it's cellular and call the ship a wrecker?

Crazy. Almost looks like a shark attacked the pier. Were they filming Jaws 5? The captain may need someone else to blame this on. He needs the 1 800 ASK GARY law firm (at least that is one advertised heavily here in Florida).

I believe the cellular is on the chunk that is stuck in the side of the
boat

Out of curiosity, I went to the RCCL board and sure enough... you posted about Splendor over there AGAIN. You sure are obsessed with this ship! Considering the fact that you are cruising on the Mariner next year, it seems odd you continue to show up on a lot of threads concerning Splendor.

Ror the record... we just sailed her last week and did not witness or hear of any "problems." The cruise was great.

Shame you could not use your work computer to see the pix.

We were in PV on the Radiance last month when we got hit by the Splendor
That ended with the Captain having chest pains a being transported to the hospital
So this must be a new captain I dont understand the pilot is guiding them and they have the prime docking area of all the cruise lines Maybe that ship is jinxed

Dont worry about the driving skills of the Capitain...he only 'drives the ship' in open waters...its the local pilot who drives into and out of port...
(because they are familiar with the local waters...lol--perhaps an updated map would help--lol)
