Carnival Cancels Celebration's August 21 Cruise

August 17, 2006
Carnival's Celebration, which experienced damage to its propulsion system this week while trying to dock at Nassau, will need to cancel a five-day cruise beginning August 21 so the ship can undergo repairs.

Meanwhile, since the technical malfunction has reduced the ship's sailing speed, the itinerary for its four-night cruise departing Jacksonville today has been revised. The scheduled call to Freeport is canceled and the ship will go to Nassau instead. A company spokesman notes that the ship's technical problems have no impact on its other systems, and that hotel services are functioning normally.

Folks booked on the now-canceled cruise will receive a full refund and 50 percent discount on a future three- to seven-day Carnival cruise departing prior to December 13, 2007. Passengers on today's revised sailing will receive a $100 per person credit to their shipboard accounts and a 20 percent discount off a future three- to seven-day cruise departing prior to December 13, 2007. Carnival also says that those who want to cancel may receive a future cruise credit or full refund.
