NEW YORK, March 15 (Itar-Tass) – There are no Russian nationals on board the Dream cruise ship facing equipment problems in the Caribbean, Russian Consul General in Houston (Texas) Alexander Zakharov told Tass by telephone on Thursday.
This information was received after an inquiry sent to Carnival Corporation that owns the ship. At the present moment the ship, that set off for a seven-day cruise from Port Canaveral last Saturday is docked at Phillipsburg port in St. Maarten. There are 3,636 passengers on board.
The company leadership is making arrangements for passengers aboard the stranded ship to fly home.
The ship encountered “a technical issue” with its backup emergency diesel generator during a scheduled port of call on Wednesday. There were also brief interruptions to the elevators and toilets on Wednesday night. All systems are functioning normally now. However, the ship remains docked at Phillipsburg in St. Maarten for checks of the equipment. Carnival has already made the decision to cancel a next cruise of the Dream from Port Canaveral on March 16.
An engine fire crippled the Carnival Triumph cruise ship in February, leaving 4,200 passengers without working toilets or power.
