Princess Cruise Ship Suffers Temporary Technical Glitch

Contents Show

Earlier this week the 3,100-guest Caribbean Princess lost power in the Irish Sea which left the ship adrift for nine hours. Princess said this was caused by a technical glitch and was forced to cancel their Dublin port call.

A tugboat was called to the ship to assist in providing resources to get Caribbean Princess up and running again.

According to a statement by Princess Cruises on Twitter, “Caribbean Princess lost propulsion approximately 25 nautical miles southeast of Dublin in the Irish Sea. The ship has electrical power and is operating full ship/hotel services, inc. air conditioning, galleys, lighting & toilets.”

The 112,000-ton Caribbean Princess is on a 12-night cruise from Southampton that departed on July 31, and has since resumed their planned itinerary.
