tiltThe Carnival Cruise Line said a technical issue was to blame for the mess caused when a ship listed, or tilted, hours after leaving a Florida port.

The cruise line said the Carnival Sunshine cruise ship listed dramatically Sunday evening, hours after departing Port Canaveral, due to a fin stabilizer malfunction that was quickly corrected.

Passengers said the tilting ship caused various messes inside the vessel, as well as some panicking among confused customers.

“I didn’t think anything of it, since it’s not uncommon for ships to rock back and forth. But it didn’t rock back. It kept leaning,” passenger David Crews told WKMG-TV. “Plates and silverware started sliding off the tables. Then the tables themselves started to slide. Glasses and plates started to fall and shatter. At this point, it was pure chaos. Screams. Cries. Panic.”  More  Video
