Galaxy Misses Port
June 13, 2002
Passengers on Celebrity's Galaxy this week -- a ten-day western Caribbean voyage out of Baltimore -- will miss a port call in Belize as a result of a malfunctioning turbocharger. The part, which broke on the way to Key West, was flown in from Celebrity headquarters and Miami and cruisers spent an extra-long day in the U.S.'s closest-to-Cuba city (the usual call is a five hour half-day, the ship instead was there from 10 a.m. - 8 p.m.). The turbocharger was ultimately fixed and the ship went on its way. Passengers received a $100-per-stateroom credit to make up for the missed port of call.
