Disabled Carnival Splendor 5 miles off the San Diego coast

Posted: Updated:

OFF SAN DIEGO (CBS 8 ) - The disabled Carnival Splendor is slowly making its way towards San Diego Bay, bringing a nightmare cruise to the Mexican Riveria to an end.

Tug boats are escorting the luxury liner toward port. It was about 5 miles off the coast of Imperial Beach at sunrise Thursday.

The 952-foot Splendor has been dead in the water since about daybreak Monday, when a fire erupted in an aft engine room.

It could take up about two hours for the ship to crawl into the bay and safely make its way to port at the San Diego Cruise Ship Terminal.
