German-based TUI Cruises has announced a return to operations towards the end of July with cruises to nowhere.

It’s being reported that there has been some minor smoke coming from the Carnival Paradise cruise ship which is operated by Carnival Cruise Lines.

The news apparently came out by twitter user @omasaid which the Cruise Law News first reported on. According to the site which is run by Maritime Lawyer Jim Walker, the smoke started not long after the Fantasy class ship departed Cozumel, Mexico. In a statement also sent to the site it states that “an air conditioning compressor overheated causing some smoke in the forward section of the ship”

Here are some tweets from the @omasaid who first posted the news:

May 7, 2014 – 9 a.m. EDT

Around midnight last night while the Carnival Paradise was en route from Cozumel to its homeport of Tampa, an air conditioning compressor overheated causing some smoke in the forward section of the ship.

Shipboard personnel immediately responded and addressed the situation. All safety and hotel systems are operating normally and the ship is expected to arrive in Tampa Thursday morning as scheduled.

Announcements were made keeping guests apprised of the situation and the U.S.  Coast Guard was notified as per standard protocol.

Carnival Paradise is currently operating a five-day cruise that departed Tampa on Saturday, part of its year-round four- and five-day schedule from that port.[/quote_box_center]
