Cruise ship CARNIVAL LEGEND suffered mechanical malfunction on Aug 29 at around 1830 LT, while approaching Victoria port, B.C. According to witness information published in Cruise Law News, and incident description in Wikipedia, vessel developed a heavy list, which lasted for some 3-4 minutes. Water flowed from swimming pools, things fell on the floors in public places and cabins, and passengers were pretty scared. Vessel reduced speed after returning to even keel, it was announced, that the mishap was caused by starboard azipod malfunction. Wiki description seems to be too dramatic, with 30 degrees list not just plates, but a lot of other heavier things would end up on the floor, as well as dining passengers. Vessel arrived at Victoria, last port off call, with two hours delay. No injures reported.
