Carnival’s European Brand Details Gradual Return of Cruises in 2021

Carnival's largest European cruise line has announced its plan on a gradual return of more cruises in 2021.

It’s being reported that the Carnival Triumph which is operated by Carnival Cruise Lines had a brief power failure yesterday while sailing from Cozumel, Mexico to Galveston, Texas.

The KATC reports that the power outage was caused by an electrical breaker which caused a ventilation issue with the ships incinerator. This caused smoke to travel around some parts on three decks.

The good news is that there was no fire reported and the ship is now safely back at its home port in Galveston. The power is now back to normal and was only out for eight minutes. Another point to remember is that the cruise line spend $300 Million on upgrading it;s back-up generators last year so the ships engineers probably watched the events closely to make sure the new upgrades performed well in reality.

There is no delay in the Carnival Triumphs next cruise which will start today.
