The Carnival cruise ship C/V Splendor adrift November 9, 2010 off the coast California.

Local TV stations have cameras in the air to record the slow progress as tugs steer the ship in. You can watch as it happens.

The Carnival Splendor is limping into San Diego Bay this hour, as the Associated Press puts it, after three days of "limited food, smelly toilets and dark cabins" for the 4,500 passengers and crew.

Passengers say it's been a "nightmare" on board, USA TODAY reports.

Update at 12:10 p.m. ET. The AP now writes that:

"Escorted by Coast Guard cutters, the 952-foot Carnival Splendor reached the dock at about 8:30 a.m. local time (11:30 a.m. ET). Passengers were expected to begin disembarking about two to three hours later, port officials said."
