A passenger on Royal Caribbean’s Liberty of the Seas has posted that the ship is currently experiencing engine problems and sailing at reduced speeds back to Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
The port stop in Ocho Rios, Jamaica was canceled on Thursday so the ship could arrive back to Fort Lauderdale on Saturday. The ship is currently on a five night sailing to the Western Caribbean with one previous port stop in Labadee, Haiti.
Announcements were made to the passengers about the engine problem and the need to sail at reduced speeds. For the inconvenience of missing the stop in Jamaica, passengers were given $100-$200 in onboard credit depending on the level of stateroom that they are staying in.
Cruise Fever has reached out to Royal Caribbean and will update this article when we receive word back from the cruise line.
