|08 May 2010||Propulsion / Power Loss|
On May 8, 2010, was reported a "passenger revolt" on the ship. The vessel was operating on a 20-night Mediterranean cruise (itinerary April 26 - May 16, roundtrip from Southampton) when experienced engine problems resulting in reduced speed and major itinerary changes.
The original itinerary included 10 call ports in 6 countries (Barcelona, Cannes, Civitavecchia, Naples, Piraeus, Istanbul, Kusadasi, Palma de Mallorca, Valencia, Gibraltar).
Due to a technical issue with diesel engine 4, the itinerary was drastically revised, to include only 4 ports - Civitavecchia, Cannes, Barcelona, and Palma. The ship was carrying around 1200 passengers, some of whom became aggravated.
P&O Cruises gave as compensation to each passenger GBP 300 in onboard credit, plus GBP 200 in cash upon disembarkation in Southampton on May 16.
