The Carnival Dream skipped a stop in Progreso after suffering a technical issue, Cruise Hive reports.
The technical issue is apparently related to reaching maximum cruising speed, impacting the final part of a five-day cruise out of Galveston, Texas.
Although the crew worked on the issue overnight, the ship’s itinerary replaced a day in Progreso with a day floating on the Gulf of Mexico.
With the slower speed to get back home, the Dream skipped its final port to reach home by Thursday.
The itinerary included a call at Cozumel on Monday and then was set to call at Progreso on Tuesday. According to MarineTraffic, the Carnival cruise ship sailed from Mexico at just over 15 knots.
Guests have apparently received compensation of $50 which will likely be refunded onto the onboard Sail & Sign account. Any port fees and booked shore excursions through the cruise line will likely have been refunded, too, Cruise Hive said.
The Dream’s next voyage from Galveston is scheduled to depart on Tuesday for a 4-day cruise with only one call, to Cozumel.
The ship has a passenger capacity of over 3,600 at double occupancy and joined the fleet in 2009.
