Angry Royal Princess has Power Failure at Sea
The New Royal Princess has apparently suffered a power failure at sea on Sept. 22....While basic power was maintained the cruise is being cut short and passengers are disembarking at Naples with a full refund and a 25% future cruise credit. No word yet about further return arrangements. The ship is to proceed then to Barcelona...no word on the next cruise.
The Royal Princess was just recently completed by Fincantieri Shipyards in Italy!!

What a shame. This was likely the cruise of a lifetime for many. Thank goodness all are safe, though.

I note that Princess made it very clear in the press releases that hotel services such as toilets, elevators, food service, etc., were never affected. What is good about that is it didn't give any ammo to the cruise bashing press, and thus we haven't seen this story get a lot of coverage.

Fincantieri is a common connection in many of the cruise ship incidents over the past couple of years.

It was on CBS yesterday but seems to be keeping a low profile. It was on that other board yesterday too.
