Cabins flooded by broken pipes
On March 12 some passenger cabins on deck 4 were flooded during the port call of the "Mein Schiff Herz" in Barcelona. The affected passengers were accomodated in balcony cabins and compensated. The crew immediately started to remove panels in order to locate the leakage which had been caused by broken pipes. Also the carpets had to be removed. The ship left port at 6.30 p.m. and headed to Palma de Mallorca.
