Default carnival pride broke down, did she ever make it back ??

I have heard that the pride was broke down in the pacific and the crew had the passengers rowing her in, anybody hear how they are compensating the people who were suppose to sail on her yesterday , what a shock to fly in get to the port and not have a ship there to greet you.

Pride back in Los Angeles [San Pedro instead of Long Beach]. Scheduled to leave later today. Last word from CCL has it being a 6-day cruise. No P. Vallarta.

Per CCL News Release of 2/4, people on the 6-day get 15% reduction in faRE plus $50 OBC. As of 7pm Monday [Pacific], ship hasn't left port.

Addendum: Looks like now CCL is giving you the option of a full refund if you choose not to sail. Ship still in Los Angeles as of 8:45pm [Pacific]

I was on that cruise. Just got home an hour ago(11..00pm eastern) The Pride got into San Pedro About 4:30 A.M. Monday after limping home most of the way from Cabo at 8 knots on one engine. At around 6:00A.M. on Saturday we were actually adrift dead in the water for a while before partial power was restored.The starboard engine seemed alright and the port one was running at less than full power.We sailed along at about 12 to 15 kts for awhile but the port engine finally gave up the ghost and we came the rest of the way at 8 kts. No rowing involved.One bonus was a concert on Sunday night by John Kesh and his band and of course a Super Bowl party in the afternoon.

Did this make her a "disabled cruiser?"
