Electrical Problems Delay Serenade of the Seas

Late Friday night as Royal Caribbean’s Serenade of the Seas was traveling up the Mississippi River to New Orleans for its Saturday turnaround, a water pipe burst, flooding some of the ship’s electrical equipment. As a result, some areas of the ship lost power.

The end result was that Serenade was a day late leaving New Orleans on the next cruise, and many passengers didn’t sail because, even then, a large number of staterooms were still without power.

The complete story appeared in the January 26 edition of Cruise News Daily.
