Seatrade Cruise News is reporting that passengers on Carnival Splendor will receive a 50% refund, a 50% credit toward a future cruise, and $100 in onboard credit for the current cruise. This is double what was originally offered to the passengers.
Carnival Splendor is currently on a seven night cruise to the Eastern Caribbean. A technical issue onboard is affecting the maximum cruising speed of the ship. Port stops in St. Thomas, USVI and Amber Cove, Dominican Republic were canceled and the ship is headed back to Miami. An on board technical team is currently working on repairs.
The seven night cruise out of Miami stopped in Grand Turk and San Juan earlier in the week. The ship is scheduled to arrive back in PortMiami on Sunday.
