Makes you wonder about the other ships in that class too. Are they likely to develop similar problems? We're booked on Sun Princess for Christmas.
Any ship can break down. Aurora embarked a full ship load of passengers and supplies for a World Cruise from Southampton one year and only got as far as the Isle of Wight. Passengers stayed on board for 3 days and then the entire cruise was cancelled and they were all sent home....(very well compensated).... and the supplies off loaded , and sent to local charities.The ship then went to Germany for a complete engine replacement. A few years later she broke down again, this time on her World Cruise and spent 6 days in Auckland while spares were sent out and repairs carried out.
