Carnival Cruise Ship’s Mechanical Problems Strand Passengers – Again

By Ross Jurewitz on March 15, 2013

A second Carnival cruise ship is suffering mechanical problems that cut passengers’ cruise time short, according to a recent article in The Los Angeles Times.

The Carnival Dream, which was carrying out a cruise in the Caribbean, began having emergency power problems a few days ago, according to one passenger who notified the Miami Coast Guard. The problem appeared to be centered in the ship’s emergency diesel generator, which powers the propulsion system. The ship had stalled at least once during the cruise, and toilets and elevators were inoperable for a short period.

On the ship’s arrival at the island of St. Maarten, passengers were offered the chance to fly home from the island. The ship remains docked at St. Maarten for examination and repairs. The cruise line says it plans to reimburse passengers for the final three days of the cruise and to offer them half off the price of a future cruise.

The Carnival Dream is the second Carnival ship in recent weeks to suffer serious electrical and mechanical problems. A month earlier, the Carnival Triumph lost power for nearly a week, leaving 4,000 passengers stranded onboard with makeshift lodgings and little food.

When any of a cruise ship’s systems malfunction, the risk of injuries skyrockets.
