A month-old cruise ship suddenly lurched to its side Tuesday and sent terrified passengers flying, leaving 93 people injured, including two critically, authorities said. The Crown Princess, a 113,000-ton vessel that can hold about 3,000 passengers and 1,200 crew members, was approximately 11 miles out of Port Canaveral and headed for New York when it listed sharply to the left at about 3:40 p.m., witnesses and officials said.

Another convicted criminal, this time an auto thief from Kentucky, has been dumped in southern Florida, police said today. Miami Beach police spokesman Howard Zeifman said Juan Duran, 27, a Cuban refugee, evidently was shipped to Florida as a result of a judge's order. The choice, according to Duran's lawyer, was "two years on probation in Kentucky, or go to Florida," Zeifman said.

Investors and divers got computer printouts Thursday telling them what portion they will receive of $100 million in treasure recovered from a sunken Spanish galleon. "Oh, oh my God. I got a beautiful emerald. A silver bar. Three silver bars," said Sherrie Culpepper, manager of the gift shop in treasure hunter Mel Fisher's museum.

The $200,000 Fantasy Stakes, which will be run for the 32nd time today at Oaklawn Park in Hot Springs, Ark., will feature three 3-year-old fillies who last raced in California. The best of the bunch is House Of Fortune. A California-bred daughter of Free House trained by Ron Mc- Anally for owner Arnold Zetcher, she has won four of seven, most recently the $77,000 California Oaks on March 6 at Golden Gate Fields. Alex Solis will ride and she will break from the rail in the 1 1/16-mile Fantasy.

The week before the San Fernando Stakes at Santa Anita Jan. 19, Proud Truth was doing his imitation of Henry VIII at barn No. 14. The 4-year-old colt ate everything but the stall door. Jesse (Ditty) Spotts, the groom who has been with Proud Truth since the horse was a 2-year-old, interpreted this voracious appetite as a good sign. "Whenever he eats his hay good, he runs good," Spotts said. "And he was emptying his hay rack every time we filled it. He never missed an oat, either."

Stop Traffic made amends for the only poor performance of her career in a big way Saturday at Santa Anita. Stop Traffic, beaten by 14 1/2 lengths when finishing seventh behind Exotic Wood in last year's Santa Monica Handicap, did much better in her return engagement in the Grade I race. Able to surge through an opening after jockey Corey Black found room, Stop Traffic rallied to beat 9-5 favorite Belle's Flag by a length in 1:22 for the seven furlongs.

About an hour after last Saturday's Florida Derby, owner Gary Biszantz and trainer Mike Puype won a two-mile race at Gulfstream Park with Mr. Lucky Junction, a 6-year-old gelding who was running for a $40,000 claiming price. That victory, worth $12,000, was hardly enough to raise the spirits of the crestfallen Biszantz and Puype, who had watched their favored Cobra King finish eighth, beating only one horse, in the $500,000 Florida Derby.
