Equinox ship wide power blackout

Recommended Posts

No second day at sea. Forward motion has stopped.

Then you've definitely got power. The ship needs power to reach the satellites.

 

You're saying propulsion is down?

The backup light came on in our room and within a minute or two Captain Kate came on and announced a black out. The lights are back on but the ship isn’t going anywhere at this point. I’m sitting on the balcony and will relax and let the crew do there jobs. I’ve never heard of this before. Thoughts.

I hope Bugnaked (Captain Kate’s kitty, see her Instagram account, it’s awesome) didn’t chew any cables.

Where are you?

First time in 150+ Celebrity cruises!! Still dead in the water. Cabin lights and A/C working. Captain said power still out to non-essential areas.

In the Caribbean headed to St. Thomas. Elevator power just restored per Capt Kate's announcement. "Engineers trying to determine what happened"

I shouldn’t have read this! We are on the next sailing. The last thing I want is for it to be cancelled due to a power failure instead of a hurricane! :(

Yes that is our first stop. Ship only stopped moving for maybe an hour.

Someone clearly blew a circuit breaker with their rice cooker.

 

 

 

Lol. That’s gotta be it. Or maybe an instant pot...

First thing to do it to go to the toilet, before the pumps stop working. And I hope celebrity ships are better designed (compared to Carnival Triumph, and Costa Concordia, which are nearly the same design), not to have single point of failure (a single point with the principal switch boxes).
