Carnival's Celebration Heads Home After Incident
Carnival's Celebration is en route to its homeport of Jacksonville following an an incident on Tuesday in which its propellers struck the sea floor while attempting to dock at Nassau. The scheduled call at Nassau was canceled; the ship is expected to arrive at Jacksonville as planned on Thursday.

In the incident, some 53 gallons of lubricating oil were spilled from the ship; media reports indicate, through quotes from a Carnival spokeswoman, that the oil had fully dissipated. However, the ship's propeller was not working as it should and one engine out of two was not functioning correctly so Celebration had to rely on just the other.

Passengers will receive a $50 credit for the missed port of call and a 25 percent discount toward a future short cruise (three to five days).
