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.
