At approximately 1.15am this morning, the Carnival Pride experienced a mechanical failure of one of its diesel generators which triggered the automated fire suppression system.  CCTV footage has confirmed that there was not an actual fire, only smoke. At no time did the ship lose power and the vessel is currently continuing on its itinerary which involves a seven-day cruise from Baltimore that departed Sunday. The ship is currently in Half Moon Cay in the Bahamas for its regularly scheduled port visit there.  There were no injuries to guests or crew and all safety, hotel and other operational systems are fully functional.

The 88,500 gross ton ship is sailing a seven-day Eastern Caribbean cruise that departed Baltimore on Sunday September 13th. There is no itinerary delay and the ship called at the cruise line’s private island of Half Moon Cay, Bahamas as scheduled.
