On Tuesday evening, August 4th the Grand Celebration cruise ship was delayed in Port of palm beach, Florida due to an electrical issue.
The ship is operated by the newly formed Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line and the vessel was originally scheduled to leave Palm Beach at 6 p.m. Instead passengers were surprised with a blackout due to an electrical problem onboard. the blackout affected many services including the air conditioning.
WPTV reports that passengers were allowed to disembark the ship but according to the site some guests were “not being offered refunds as they got off the boat.” The good news is that the former Carnival owned vessel finally set sail at around midnight and continued sailing to the Bahamas and back again.
The Grand Celebration is 47,262 gross tons and can carry over 1,000 passengers in 750 cabins. The ship is the first to sail for the new cruise line which was previously known as Celebration Cruise Line.
