Crippled cruise ship expected in San Diego Thursday

A crippled cruise ship stranded off the coast of Mexico with nearly 4,500 people onboard is now expected to arrive in San Diego, California, around midday Thursday, Carnival Cruise Lines said in a statement.

Three tugboats have now joined in the effort to tow the ship to land, according to U.S. Coast Guard Petty Officer Rachel Polish.

Carnival noted that as the ship gets closer to the coast, passengers are increasingly able to receive "intermittent cellular service. Additionally, the ship's phone system is working on a limited basis and guests are able to make complimentary calls home."

    Bush and Kanye are both puppets of Satan and their purpose is to divide the people with trivial matters. This tactic prevents humans from reaching their full potential and hinders progress across the globe. I can't wait for the day I'm put into the ground.

      What does this have to do with a cruise ship? I think you may be missed your medication?

    Yesterdays article stated "nearly 3,300 people" and todays article states "4,500 people". How did all those new people get on the boat?

      Yesterday the article was only counting passengers. Today however the article is counting all of the people on the ship; both crew and passengers.
