Just got word from friends on Pacific Princess which was supposed to embark from Dover today on an 8-day journey-- that they are stuck in pier next to Dover port with no power. For some hours had only dim hallway lights and no waste suction but just informed that backup generator was employed around 8pm local time.
No elevators so only stairs to a buffet of sandwiches on paper plates with plastic utensils. Air in fuel pipes was reported by the captain, but he also indicated that this was not the cause of the power outage which was as of the announcement, unknown.
My friend reported no free bar as of yet, but I was encouraged to post this information here for the cruising community.
