Carnival Cruise Lines Statement
Regarding Carnival Triumph: Feb 13, 2013
Carnival Cruise Lines has announced the cancellations of twelve additional voyages of the Carnival Triumph, which operates 4- and 5-day cruises from Galveston, Texas, following an engine room fire that has left vessel without propulsion. The twelve cancelled cruises, which encompass sailings from Feb. 21 through April 13, 2013, are in addition to two previously cancelled voyages scheduled to depart Feb. 11 and Feb. 16.
Guests on the affected sailings will receive a full refund of their cruise fare, as well as non-refundable transportation costs, pre-paid shore excursions, gratuities, and government fees and taxes. Guests will also receive a 25 percent discount on a future 3- to 5-day Carnival cruise or a 15 percent discount on a 6- to 7-day cruise.
Carnival sincerely apologizes for this disruption in our guests’ vacation plans.
