As a result of the flooding, the passengers located in the 50 cabins will receive a full refund, a 50 percent credit towards a future cruise, and the option to disembark the cruise ship today.  The cruise line is also providing air transportation.

Carnival Cruise Line’s Sr. Cruise Director posted the following message on Facebook about the incident:

“I’m sure many of you will have read about the situation on the Carnival Dream.

And so I wanted to share the latest fax with you as well as a video and photo of how hard our brilliant and dedicated crew have worked

On Thursday, May 3 at approximately 6 pm, there was a water line break on Carnival Dream that impacted guests in approximately 50 staterooms on Deck 9. Our onboard teams began cleanup immediately related to this clean water from a fire suppression system.

Impacted guests will receive a full 100 percent refund of their cruise fare, a 50 percent future cruise credit and the option to disembark the ship today if they choose with air transportation to return home. We appreciate our guests’ understanding and sincerely apologize. We also thank our crew members for their quick action and hard work.

  1. Carnival should keep the maintenance up on their ships rather than trying to have the most ships (with faulty systems and poor maintenance)
    they do not follow safety standard either! I saw a crewman standing on a “chair” to change a lightbulb. (Really?) And more…..
    Floor was wet in entrance of breakfast buffet. Mentioned it to an employee so they could put a wet floor sign. They told me it was not their job!.
