Ship's scheduled for March 16 (6 pm) departure from Port Cape Town (South Africa) was delayed 2 days due to engine failure. All passengers and crew were kept on the vessel not be able to access their passports. Reportedly, the issue was related to the starboard main diesel engine.
The engine issues reoccurred on March 18 at sea - off Namibia's coast. As result, the planned port call at Luderitz was canceled and the port stays in Walvis Bay and Luanda were prolonged due to repairs. On April 4 (~3:30 am), while the liner was navigating along West Africa's coast (near Freetown, Sierra Leone), both engines failed. The ship drifted for ~2 hours then continued at reduced speed with only one of the engines working.
On April 11, while en-route from Agadir to Casablanca, the ship partially lost power again, losing one of the engines. As compensation, the cruise company Voyages to Antiquity (shipowner) fully refunded all passengers.
The accident occurred during the 28-day repositioning cruise (itinerary March 16 - April 13) from Cape Town to Malaga Spain, with call ports Luderitz (Namibia), Luanda (Angola), Santo Antonio (Principe), Praia Santiago, Cape Verde), Santa Cruz de la Palma (Canaries) and Morocco (Agadir, Casablanca, Tangier).
