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.
