Cruise ship delayed due to technical trouble
The "Carnival Splendor" had to remain in the port of Los Angeles due to an engine issue. As a result, one scheduled port of call has already been canceled. The cruise line is sending out a special technician to help in the repairs. The ship was originally scheduled to depart on its 7-day cruise on May 25, 2019. The ship has moved away from the pier at 5 a.m. and was now anchored in the port to make way for the "Carnival Imagination"’s arrival after ending its 3-day cruise to Ensenada, Mexico. The crew was providing a full entertainment schedule and all operations onboard were running as normal. The plan was to operate a two port itinerary to Cabo San Lucas and Puerto Vallarta. Given the delay, it was necessary to cancel the visit to Mazatlan. The guests will receive a US$50.00, per person, credit to their Sail & Sign account. Additionally, any taxes, fees and port expenses and pre-purchased shore excursions for Mazatlan were refunded to the Sail & Sign account. Shore excursions for Cabo San Lucas will be adjusted to the new day in port. The ship finally sailed on May 26 around midnight with an ETA at Cabo San Lucas as of May 28, 6 p.m.
Cruise ship diverted due to tropical storm
The "Carnival Splendor" was diverted to San Diego on June 14, 2018, due to the impact of Tropical Storm Bud. It arrived at the Port of San Diego in the early morning as part of the itinerary change. The passengers will spend the day in San Diego before leaving for Ensenada in the evening. Carnival had to replace planned visits to Cabo San Lucas and Puerta Vallarta due to the path of the tropical storm. The ship was set to return to Long Beach on June 16.Upload News
