It is now being reported that the Carnival Ecstasy has suffered a minor power disruption on her way back to Port Canaveral.
These reports came from guests currently sailing on the ship, some suggesting that the ship experienced an engine fire. While reports of a fire are unconfirmed, Carnival has confirmed that the ship experienced a minor power failure for roughly 12 minutes on Wednesday. At the time, the ship was spending the day at sea. All hotel services were restored minutes after the ship lost power.
According to Carnival, all hotel operations and propulsion systems are currently operating. The Carnival Ecstasy is expected to arrive in her home port of Port Canaveral later this afternoon.
