GALVESTON, Texas - A cruise ship operator says dozens of people were hurt when one of its vessels listed during a maneuver to avoid a partially submerged buoy that was adrift near Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula.

Carnival Cruise Lines says the ship, Carnival Ecstasy, had to make a sharp turn to avoid the buoy Wednesday afternoon.

Carnival spokeswoman Jennifer De La Cruz says 60 guests and one crew member suffered minor injuries and that some unsecured objects aboard the ship were damaged. She says no one required treatment at a hospital.

Miami-based Carnival said the ship safely docked Thursday at its home port in Galveston. The U.S. Coast Guard has been notified about the wayward buoy.

De La Cruz says the ship was carrying about 2,340 passengers and 900 crew members.
