- power-propulsion loss - 2018 (near Porto Torres, Sardinia)
|08 December 2018||Propulsion / Power Loss|
On December 8, 2018, Cruise Roma ferry suffered propulsion issue (portside propeller breakdown, reportedly propeller shaft). The accident occurred in the early morning, shortly after the ship left Porto Torres (Sardinia Island, Italy) and was en-route to homeport Barcelona.
In the afternoon, the crew managed to fix the problem, but the liner was rerouted to Civitavecchia (Rome), where docked shortly after midnight on December 9. A total of 390 passengers were transferred to another Grimaldi ferry and taken to Barcelona.
AIS tracking data showed Cruise Roma cruising towards Civitavecchia at full speed, so it wasn't clear why the crossing was cancelled and travelers had to be moved to another ship. Most probably, propeller shaft deficiency required additional survey and drydock repairs.
