Miami, FL — November 11, 2010 (11:45 am EST)
The cruise ship Carnival Splendor, which lost power after experiencing an engine room fire, arrived in San Diego at approximately 8.30am local time.
Carnival has made arrangements for all guests to either travel home today or overnight in area hotels and has a large team of employees in San Diego to assist with these arrangements.
Guests will be receiving a full refund along with reimbursement for transportation costs. Additionally, they will receive a complimentary future cruise equal to the amount paid for this voyage.
“We wish to thank our guests for their patience and cooperation during this very difficult situation and offer our sincerest apologies,” said Gerry Cahill, Carnival’s president and CEO.
