Carnival Elation which is operated by Carnival Cruise Line has accidentally spilled grey water at one of the busiest cruise ports in the world.

Carnival Elation Spillage

The Fantasy-class cruise ship was docked at her homeport of Port Canaveral in Florida yesterday when grey water was accidentally discharged before 9:00 AM on Thursday, hours after returning from a 5-day eastern Caribbean cruise.

Apparently, the grey water valve failed and unintentionally discharged from the non-sewage waste water systems. The cruise line has made it clear that no sewage was discharged.

Carnival Cruise Line stated to Cruise Hive:

Yesterday at Port Canaveral, while Carnival Elation was discharging water from its ballast systems which helps stabilize the ship for navigational purposes, a grey water valve failed and unintentionally discharged grey water from non-sewage waste water systems.  No sewage was discharged.

The issue was quickly addressed and resolved by shipboard personnel and all appropriate authorities were notified. 

Carnival Elation was cleared to sail and departed on its scheduled four-day cruise yesterday afternoon.

Carnival Cruise Line did quickly address and resolve the failure and notified the authorities including the Coast Guard. Grey water consists of the waste water from sinks, showers and laundry machines. It doe not include the waste from the toilet.
