Princess Cruises’ newest ship, Royal Princess, suffered a power outage onboard for 3.5 hours during a Mediterranean cruise over the weekend. Emergency generators provided power for essential services including toilets, during the outage. Full power has since been restored.
The captain kept passengers informed of the situation and at no time was the ship in any danger. However, passengers noted that the ship had many other problems throughout their 12-night cruise, including plumbing, electrical, air-conditioning, and other delays like pulling anchor up prior to sailing.
As a result of the loss of power, Royal Princess is canceling the remainder of its trip and will be taken out of service for repair.
