Royal Caribbean’s Grandeur of the Seas suffered from a propulsion issue towards the end of its last cruise which came to an end today.

The engine problem was due to a leak in the engine oil exchanger and as a result the ship was forced to cancel its scheduled port of call at Labadee, Haiti on March 27.

Grandeur of the Seas sailed straight back to its home port in Baltimore. On the way the issue was being looked at and resolved with no impact on the next scheduled cruise which departs today.

Passengers have been given a refund of 20 percent of their cruise fare back on to their onboard accounts.

The 74,100 gross ton Grandeur of the Seas was sailing a 10-night Western Caribbean cruise when the engine problem occurred.
