A local Genoa blog is reporting Costa Cruise’s Costa Deliziosa suffered a complete power failure while docked in the Spanish port of Valencia yesterday.
The Costa Deliziosa reportedly lost all electrical power for a number of hours yesterday until the issue could be repaired by onboard technicians. Costa states the ship’s passengers and crew were never in any danger and the situation was nothing more than an electrical failure.
Repairs are expected to take a number of days, which has led Costa to cancel the remainder of the ship’s current sailing, as well as consider alternative options for the ship’s next scheduled sailing on May 20th. Guests currently aboard the ship will receive transportation to their final destination as well as a 50% percent refund of their cruise fare and onboard credit. Guests sailing on the May 20th sailing of the Costa Deliziosa have been contacted by Costa’s customer care team and are being provided updates on their sailing.
According to Cruise Critic, guests are also being provided complimentary shore excursions during their extended stay in Valencia.
At this time, the exact cause of the power failure is unknown.
