Faulty Generators Force Overnight Delay for Cruise Ship
dream-rescue (10:00 a.m. EDT) -- MV Voyager has been delayed overnight in a port in Ireland after encountering technical problems with two onboard generators yesterday (May 28).

Two out of the four generators on the 15,271-tonne, 540-passenger ship stopped working while the ship was in port Killybegs, Ireland. However, the ship still has power and guest facilities are operating normally.

The 487 passengers have remained onboard and the ship laid on extra shore excursions in Killybegs.

Specialist engineers have inspected the generators and will file a report by the end of today.

Voyages of Discovery has apologised to all its passengers and ensured that before any further decisions are made to the continuation of the cruise, one of the affected generators must be in working order.

MV Voyager is currently on a nine day Celtic Treasures cruise. The cruise departed Portsmouth on 25 May 2013. The ship was scheduled to leave Killybegs, Ireland, on 28 May 2013 in the evening and arrive in Portrush in Northern Ireland on the morning of 29 May 2013. The current cruise is due to end on 2 June 2013 in Portsmouth.
