Carnival Cruise Lines And Why Third Party Travel Insurance Pays

Carnival Cruise Lines has had a rough few weeks, but as difficult as Triumph’s drift, Dream’s electrical failure and Legend’s propulsion problems have likely been on the Carnival Corp. PR team, these seaborne debacles have been harder still on the boats’ passengers. By way of making amends, Carnival has offered its indignant clients small amounts of cash and credits for exactly the sort of future cruises they probably want to avoid. That said, Carnival didn’t really have to offer the victims of their hospitality anything at all — an argument, if there ever was one, for third party insurance.

Second Carnival Cruise Ship Having Trouble at Sea

ABC News ‎-
Another day, another Carnival cruise ship is having issues. The company announced late Thursday night that the Carnival Legend, currently off the coast of Honduras, is unable to sail at its optimal speed because of a technical problem, forcing the ship to cut short passengers’ vacation. The Carnival Legend has canceled its visit to Grand Cayman today so it can immediately return to its homeport in Tampa Bay, Fla., according to a news release. The Legend is on the last leg of a seven-day Caribbean cruise that departed Tampa March 10.

New Carnival nightmare: Passengers being flown home from troubled cruise

Another Carnival cruise liner is experiencing problems with its propulsion system amid reports of power outages and overflowing toilets while docked in the Caribbean, one month after a fire crippled the Carnival Triumph in the Gulf of Mexico. A U.S. Coast Guard spokeswoman in Miami told the Associated Press Thursday that Carnival Dream’s captain reported possible trouble with the ship’s propulsion system. Petty Officer Sabrina Laberdesque said the ship has sewage and power and officials are working to correct the problems. She says the Coast Guard is not involved because the ship is moored.
