The Carnival Dream has a technical issue with the ship’s backup emergency diesel generator which our engineering team is currently working on.
Yesterday, during regularly scheduled testing of the ship’s emergency diesel generator, a malfunction occurred. At no time did the ship lose power and the ship’s propulsion systems and primary power source was not impacted. The ship is at dock in St. Maarten. All guests are safe and comfortable.
There were periodic interruptions to elevators and restroom services for a few hours last night. However, all hotel systems are functioning normally and have been functional since approximately 12.30am.
We are very sorry for this disruption to our guests' vacation plans and extend our sincere apologies.
