Carnival Liberty Cruise Cut Short for Bow Thruster Repairs

(6 p.m. EDT) — In an effort to fix ongoing bow thruster problems, Carnival Cruise Line’s Carnival Liberty will cut its May 21 sailing short by one day, according to a statement from the line.

The ship will skip its planned call on Progreso and instead return on May 25 — a day early — to Galveston, where some of the repairs will be completed. The issue is expected to be fully resolved by mid-June, and other voyages will continue as scheduled.

To each person booked on the May 21 sailing, Carnival is offering $100 in onboard credit or the opportunity to cancel for a full refund. Passengers opting to sail will be allowed to spend the day onboard in Galveston if they choose; the repairs are not expected to impact any of the ship’s onboard amenities.

The May 21 itinerary’s Cozumel visit is also unaffected.

Carnival Liberty did, however, miss a Cozumel call on its May 2 sailing. According to a previous statement from Carnival, «In the absence of full bow thruster capability, the ship can arrive and depart a port with the assistance of tug boats and maintain its normal itinerary. Based on when the issue occurred … we were not able to secure tugboat assistance in Cozumel in time to call at that port.»
