Another carnival cruise without power

At least they are docked in St Maarten

Ouch, that is going to be really expensive for the cruise line if they cannot get things repaired quickly and get the ship off the dock. I think those places charge like $20,000.00 an hour when the ship departs later than planned. One reason why cruise lines don't wait for late returners.

Apparently it has power (and the toilets are working -- hooray!). There is a propulsion problem. Agree that I'd rather be "stuck" on St. Maarten than stranded at sea!

True. However, I read that the captain isn't allowing anyone off the ship. I wonder how long before someone freaks and jumps.

The news said they couldn't confirm that the toilets were backing up.

They're docked in St. Maarten, I would assume they're not being allowed off the ship because it's open-ended as to when they might depart. I suppose they could still give them a time to be back.

This will not be good publicity for Carnival though. This is the third time they've had a ship stranded within a few years. That's if you don't count the Costa problems.
