Carnival cruise ship returns to port after experiencing technical issues

MIAMI (WSVN) - The Carnival Splendor cruise ship returned to South Florida, Sunday.

Guests arrived in Port Miami — back on dry land after technical issues affected the ship’s cruising speed Thursday night.

The company gave passengers a 50 percent refund, a 50 percent credit toward a future cruise, and a $100 on board credit.

“At first, none of us were satisfied,” said one passenger, Amber Warren, “because it wasn’t originally 50 percent off–it was originally only 25 percent off of the next cruise. No money refunded back to us. So we were not satisfied with that. The passengers all banded together and the captain actually fought for us.”

The Carnival Splendor was on day four of a seven day cruise, when the ship experience technical failure.

Technicians are currently working to figure out what repairs are needed.
