Carnival Cruise Line has been finalizing plans for the cruise line Pride of Carnivalnow that the ship will remain in Kiel, Germany for emergency repairs.
A detailed discussion is to consider the advanced travel plans of the guests, how the flights are handled, what the guests need to arrive at the airports, and how to receive the guests at the train station in Dover, UK if needed.
Travel Plans Travel To Pride of Carnival Strangers
More than 2,000 people rode Pride of Carnival they are finally learning and starting to use the travel plans from the cruise ship that are needed now.
Various options are available, depending on whether guests want to return home immediately, want to stay on the boat until their first flights in the next few days, or plan to be return guests on the next trip, which has now been cancelled.
Pride of Carnival It remains in Kiel, Germany for an overhaul of the aircraft engine. The ship they caused traffic problems that reduced the speed of travel Tuesday evening, and instead of continuing the first 12-night journey, the last port – Gothenburg, Sweden – was cancelled. The ship then returned to Kiel for inspection and repairs.
When the scale of the renovation and the need for specialized parts and expertise were determined, Carnival Cruise Line chose it canceling the ship’s next trip – 9 European cruises visiting ports in the UK and Ireland.
Many passengers who had already boarded, had planned to travel back and now need to change their travel routes, as well as updates for passengers planning to join the train on Friday, July 21.
Now, some of the travel plans have been finalized, and the tourists who have already left for the flight have already started to return home. Some passengers have chosen not to board Pride of Carnival We are in port in Kiel, waiting to be repaired and what may have been shortened for the next voyage.
Some passengers are being accommodated on the cruise and will have special immigration arrangements before the ship departs on Friday. Hotel rooms and shuttles between the hotel and important airports of various airlines have been arranged.
The train back to the Dover cruise terminal is also scheduled, which will be useful for travelers who drive their cars to the port.
When Does Carnival Pride Start?
New problems have arisen, however, such as Pride of CarnivalHotel Director, Alina Chefneux, explained to guests on Thursday, July 20.
“Apparently, the Port of Kiel did not expect our visit, or our long stay,” Chefneux explained. “The local authorities have been willing to help us, as we are working to take care of you all.”
Because other ships are expected to visit Kiel in the next few days, Pride of Carnival now they have to move to the warehouse, and visitors will no longer be able to go down to see the local area.
Apag-Lloyd Cruises EuropeCosta Cruises’ Costa Firenze (same ship expected to be Carnival Firenze in 2024), AIDA Criuses’ AIDAnovaMSC Cruises’ MSC Euribiaand all other ships calling at Kiel at the end of the week.
“For the next few days, only those tourists who need to go down to the airport will be allowed to disembark the train. The immigration authorities are making special arrangements to take care of those tourists, but they will not be able to do so for the majority of tourists,” Chefneux said.
This may not be valid for passengers who choose not to board Pride of Carnival and now they find themselves without any chance of getting out of the ship.
Guests who have boarded have said that the crew does a great job of providing high-quality service and additional services, but it can be tedious depending on the time required for maintenance.
The word “a few days” is also concerning, because it could mean that the repair of the ship could take longer than we expected. Any shortened cruise on the next cruise can be much shorter, perhaps only 1-2 ports, instead of the six ports on the first cruise.
A letter to visitors noted that specialist technicians have already entered the ship to confirm repair plans, and the necessary parts are on the way to speed up the repairs.
Pride of Carnival is due to remain home from Dover, UK, until mid-September, before re-docking in Rome (Civitavecchia) to offer Mediterranean cruises. In late October, the ship will return to Tampa, Florida to spend the winter offering Western Caribbean and Panama Canal cruises.
