Burst water pipe flooded 50 cabins
The "Carnival Dream" berthed in Cozumel in the morning of May 4, 2018, after having a pipe of the water supply on deck 9 burst. More than 50 cabins on deck 9 were flooded while the ship was sailing in the Caribbean. The water poured into the corridors and into the cabins which were well the waterline of the ship, so that the passengers were surprised when the water suddenly began to flood into the hallways. Fortunately, it was no sea water but freshwater from the ship's own piping system. The crew used buckets to remove the water. Crews worked to repair the rooms damaged which included replacing carpeting in multiple rooms and restoring 50 staterooms so guests could sleep in their beds that evening. Those guests who were impacted are receiving a full refund, in addition to a 50-percent future cruise credit. The ship sailed again from Cozumel on May 6 at 8 a.m. and headed to New Orleans, were it arrived on May 7at 12.40 p.m. Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yn5iGucN1fQ
