Cruise ship came over almost submerged wreck
The 'Mardi Gras', which just spent two days at sea after leaving Port Canavaral, encountered something that drew the attention of the watch officer, Captain, Hotel Manager, and Carnival’s ambassador John Heald on Aug 2, 2021, just after 10 p.m. The atch officer encountered a nearly entirely submerged ship with just the bow protruding from the water surface. As the ship was not a known wreck and not marked on any charts, the officers took immediate action. With the powerful spotlights mounted on the ship, the Captain immediately changed course and scanned the vessel for any signs of life. Neither the half-sunken vessel nor the immediate surroundings showed any signs of human activity. Brand Ambassador John Heald informed the guests of what was happening around the vessel. A full sweep of the area showed no signs of life. The position of the wreck was reported to the U.S. Coast Guard. After the ship had performed a figure eight looking for any survivors, it continued on its route to San Juan, where it arrived on Aug 3.
