A cruise passenger aboard the Carnival Legend notified me yesterday that the Carnival cruise ship experienced a brief power loss causing a blackout on at least her deck.
The incident occurred yesterday when the cruise ship was leaving the port of Seattle.
The passenger said:
"Very strange thing happened been 4:05 pm on carnival legend just as the safety briefing is over everybody goes back to their rooms . . . And the power goes off its been like 4 minutes already no announcement has been made about it / Pitch dark in the room. I’m in deck X fwd port side / Its back but nothing was said about it. (deck number omitted to maintain passenger’s confidentiality).
The passenger sent a short video of the blackout which I posted on my YouTube page.
I’m told that power outages are relatively common. But this comes just a week after this ship suffered what many say was either a propulsion issue or a steering problem leading to the Carnival Legend listing heavily.
