Carnival Splendor Safely Home

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.

  1. Most of the passengers complimented the crew, I saw John on Fox News last night, I suspect he is the hero of the cruise.

    Happy Birthday Mr Ed………

    ” Happy Birthday Big Ed ” Even though it is very foggy this morning, if you step out and face towards the Detroit River you can also hear me sing:

    Happy Birthday to you
    Happy Birthday to you
    Happy birthday Big Ed
    Happy Birthday to you.

    • Thank you Paul. I was planning on going up to Frankenmuth, Michigan to do some Christmas decoration shopping but the fog changed my mind. The new GPS I got for BD doesn’t have FOG VISION, LOL.
