Local news reporting trouble with a Carnival ship apparently running aground in or just off San Juan harbor. The Glory was in San Juan in a port call today.

Anyone know if accurate or true?

Preliminary: ship dropped anchor for unexplained reasons just off the harbor and the anchor is stuck at the bottom and can't be retrieved. Passengers and crew safe.

Marine Traffic web site is showing it anchored just outside San Juan harbor.

Video of the scene shows a tug alongside the ship. It's getting dark in San Juan right now. (6:50 Atlantic Standard Time).

This is one of those annoying "news" sites with lots of ads and what not. Tread lightly if you want to see a shaky video of the scene just before dusk:

Well the Carnival Glory decided to drop one of her anchors leaving San Juan and drag it awhile. So we are stuck here for a bit. Looks like I need to take over driving this ship.

DH and I just got off a harbor sunset cruise in San Juan. We saw the Glory just sitting outside the channel. I think there is more going on than a dropped/lost anchor. The ship is being pushed ashore and is listed starboard a good 15 degrees. We have watched the ship be pushed by the large waves for over 2 hours now.

It's still stuck out there, according to Marine Traffic. It is now dark in San Juan.

Marine Traffic has been reporting alternating "underway" and "anchored" for the past hour.

That seems like a swing around the anchor. Almost no forward speed.

Prayers for those on board. Even if close to shore and competent assets, the anxiety of being stuck in rough seas, don't care to go through that.

Agree. Assuming the stuck anchor is the issue, anyone who has been on a small fishing boat and had their hook/lure snag on an underwater obstruction, you swing the boat all around the obstruction to try and free the hook(s).

I don't have much to add to this thread except that I'm currently on the Sunshine.

We saw the Glory in St. Thomas yesterday, and we are currently underway to San Juan.

We've been on the Glory 3 times, so it's of interest.

Thanks AOS for your on the spot reporting.

I wish I had marine VHF radio on me. It's Sunday and all the news sites are asleep.
