Carnival Elation Cruise ShipWith Carnival under a microscope, the cruise line continues to experience bad PR as yet another Carnival cruise ship experienced a mechanical failure.

The Chicago Tribune reports that last weekend, the Carnival Elation had to get a tugboat escort down the Mississippi River after a mechanical problem.

In the last 2 months, four of Carnival’s ship suffered full or partial power failures, the Triumph, Dream, Legend and the Elation

It’s early in the year, stay tuned.
