Carnival Updates Cruise Ship Flooding
We already posted about the flooding which occurred on the Carnival cruise ship, you can take a look here. The water line broke on Thursday evening, May 3 at 6 PM and as a result water started gushing out into the corridors and almost 50 staterooms.
Carnival updated that almost 100 guests were impacted by the flooding and only a handful of passengers chose to sleep in the ships spa for that night. Crew members did move mattresses there for them. Two guests did choose to disembark the vessel which was an option being offered from the cruise line.
Carnival Cruise Line also posted new video footage of the guest corridor on deck 9 which was previously seen on video on social media flooded. Watch the new footage below:
Carnival Dream crew members responded very well to the water line break. Carnival stated that within 6 hours of the flooding crew had replaced the carpets in the corridor and staterooms where needed and dried out any damp areas.
There was also no delay on the Carnival Dreams arrival back in New Orleans today and most guests were able to enjoy their cruise vacation with minimal impact. The ship is departing today on another 7-night western Caribbean cruise.
