The popular cruise fan site Cruise Critic is reporting that the Carnival Ecstasy’s return to Port Canaveral this morning was delayed due to a brief power failure last evening.
Cruise Critic states that the Ecstasy lost power for around 12 minutes while sailing back to Port Canaveral at the end of a five-night Bahamas cruise.
Carnival released a statement, saying that "All hotel services and propulsion were quickly restored and the ship is currently underway on its way back to its homeport."
Carnival attributed the power outage to a "mechanical failure."
The Ecstasy is an old Fantasy class cruise ship launched in 1991. Carnival has been under criticism for neglecting maintenance on its ships.
