Celebration Still Malfunctioning
Carnival Cruise Lines' Celebration, which last week suffered a malfunction in the ship's portside propulsion system that resulted in one late-arriving cruise and another shortened one, says repairs are still not completed. As a result, Carnival has modified Celebration's five-day trip, beginning today, that originally slated calls at Cozumel and Playa del Carmen. Instead, the ship will make just one port stop – and that at Progreso (Mexico).

A company statement says repair work continues and attributes the delay to the need for ordering a replacement part. Carnival feels certain that the part will be received – and installed – in time for Celebration's next scheduled cruise, which departs on Saturday.

The malfunction has no impact on any other area of ship operations.

In the meantime, the company is providing passengers on this week's affected voyage with a $400 per stateroom credit and a 50 percent discount on a future four or five day trip. Those who wish to cancel will receive a full refund – plus a future 50 percent-off discount.
