Carnival Paradise is suffering from technical issues which include the ships maximum cruising speed.
The Fantasy-class vessel which is operated by Carnival Cruise Line is the second to suffer from its maximum cruising speed, Carnival Splendor was forced to cancel ports which we previously posted about yesterday. The cruise line has been forced to alter Carnival Paradise itineraries through June 10, 2017. The changed itineraries will only be on 5-day cruises, 4-day cruises will remain as normal.
The 5-day itineraries on Carnival Paradise will be altered Depending on the departure date, Costa Maya, Mexico will be replacing Grand Cayman, Mahogany Bay (Roatan) and Key West all the way through June 10, 2017. Carnival has stated that all guests will receive a $25 shipboard credit per person.
Carnival Paradise is sailing 4-day and 5-day cruises out of Tampa, Florida all year round. The ship is also scheduled for a dry dock in 2018 but it is still too early to know what will be added. Until then, Carnival will have to come up with a way to fix the cruising speed so future itineraries won’t be affected.
The ship is 70,300 gross tons and can carry over 2,000 passengers at double occupancy.
