Default Ecstasy

I have friends booked for mid April. Any chance that the ship will still have problems at that time? Is she back on schedule?

There are a few threads here on that ship. I would not be concerned. I am sure CCL will get this fixed and all will be fine again. They will probably not do another port on the current sailing...I think they are in Progresso for repairs and will have to take into consideration the day and a half at sea to return.

Propulsion problem continues to hamper Carnival Ecstasy

MIAMI -- Carnival Cruise Lines' Ecstasy is continuing to experience a technical problem with its propulsion system, Carnival said Wednesday.

A technician from Europe is to board the ship today during its call in Progreso, Mexico; replacement parts also are being brought on board, the line said.

The Ecstasy offers four- and five-day cruises from Galveston, Texas. The ship's next cruise is March 12; future schedules have not been altered, Carnival said.

The propulsion issue, which slows the ship's speed, cropped up on the Ecstasy's March 3 cruise from Galveston. The ship arrived back in port March 7 several hours later than scheduled. Passengers on the departing March 7 cruise were given a $40 per-person shipboard credit to cover meal expenses prior to boarding.

In addition, passengers received a $100 per person shipboard credit, a 25% refund on their cruise fare and a 25% discount on a future cruise.

This is a nice response from Carnival. I am confident CCL is doing all it can to make things right.

Ecstasy misses Progreso, Mexico, call

MIAMI -- The Ecstasy’s March 7 voyage, which has been hampered by a technical problem with its propulsion system, became a cruise-to-nowhere Thursday after the ship failed to reach Progreso, Mexico.

Adverse weather conditions forced the ship to cancel the Progreso call, Carnival said, although the ship stayed positioned near the port to allow replacement parts to be brought onboard.

Carnival upped its refund offer to passengers, from 25% to 50% of the cruise fare. Passengers had been advised of the ship’s reduced operating speeds and the chance of itinerary modifications before they boarded on March 7, Carnival said.

The line has not changed any of the Ecstasy’s future sailings.

My mom just called from the ship, she said they're being pushed down the channel by a tug, and there is also a tug on each side. They were told they probably wouldn't be off the ship until 12 noon (central). Just a friendly little update, and yes she is still managing to enjoy herself! : )

The problems are pretty major it seems but there is not doubt that it will be repaired as fast as it can be. An April cruise should definately be safe and the repairs completed.
