Over the weekend, we received word from a cruise passenger aboard a Celebrity cruise ship, the Reflection, that the ship was forced to stay overnight in Civitavecchia (Rome) due to unspecified mechanical problems.
The cruise line reportedly refused to disclose the nature of the problem to passengers on the ship.
The Reflection was delayed in port overnight in Italy until July 5th at 3 p.m.
The passengers missed the next port of call in Messina, Italy.
The ship is sailing to Piraeus, Greece, where it is will arrive today. Its sounds like everything is going well at this point. The passengers were scheduled for a 10 day cruise.
Celebrity reportedly provided a onboard credit of $200 a cabin plus an additional $50 credit for the third and fourth passengers.
The last time we wrote about a Celebrity cruise ship delayed in port was last December when the Celebrity Constellation suffered an engine problem in Key West.
Does anyone know what type of mechanical problem the Reflection was experiencing and what type of repairs took place?
