Way down deep in Caribbean Princess, there's a bit of trouble in Caribbean Princess. The ship began experiencing a propulsion problem as it left St. Maarten. Engineers have been working to correct the problem, but until they do, the ship is sailing at a reduced speed.
The ship is expected to return to Ft. Lauderdale on time tomorrow. At this point Princess doesn't have an estimate when they will be able to correct the problem, although engineers are continuing to address it. They also can't predict how (or if) next week's itinerary will be affected.
I WAS ON THE SHIP...LAST WEEK...THEY WERE EXPERIENCING TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES FROM LEAVING ST. MARTIN...THEREFORE COULD NOT MEET THE SPEED NEEDED AND HAD TO SKIP PRINCESS CAYS AND SPEND A EXTRA DAY AT SEA
thank you, mountain. actually, i was able to check some other boards, and determine that the problem was last week, not this week. since the ship seems to be on schedule this week, i am guessing the problem has been fixed.
hope you had a good cruise, and enjoyed your shipboard credit!
