Celebrity Cruise Ship Loses Power in Port
Celebrity Constellation (12:40 p.m. EST) -- Celebrity Constellation lost power for about an hour early Sunday while it was docked at Key West. The outage comes nearly two months after a problem with a gas turbine engine forced the ship to overnight at the same port.

Cynthia Martinez, director of global corporate communications for Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd., told Cruise Critic the ship "experienced a technical issue that caused it to lose partial power for 50 minutes. During this time, the back-up systems came online in order to support all of the ship's critical systems." Onboard engineers were able to resolve the problem and restore full power to the ship before it left port. Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. is the parent company of Celebrity Cruises.

Cruise Critic first learned of the power outage from CruiseFever.com, which has a staff writer onboard the ship. According to the writer, the power was out for closer to 90 minutes during which time the emergency lighting was triggered, toilets did not work, there was no running water and the elevators were out.

On December 15, Constellation experienced a problem with a gas turbine engine. Repairs forced the ship to spend the night in Key West and resulted in a scheduled call to Cozumel being replaced with Nassau.
