Carnival Sensation sets sail after cabins flood

Some guests refused to stay onboard after flooding


PORT CANAVERAL, Fla. – A Carnival Cruise Line ship set sail after several cabins were flooded while it was docked in Port Canaveral.

A water pipe break Thursday afternoon at the port caused the flooding onboard the Carnival Sensation.

Passengers who had their cabins flooded were moved to other cabins. The problem has since been resolved and the ship left for the Bahamas. 

However, some guests refused to continue with their cruise after the problem. Carnival said it provided them with full refunds. 

The ship was supposed to leave in the afternoon, but didn't set sail until 9:25 p.m. due to the break, which required officials to load additional provisions and fresh water.

Carnival told Local 6 it "sincerely apologizes for this disruption to our guests' vacation plans."

Carnival Sensation is sailing on a three-day cruise to Nassau and is scheduled to return to Port Canaveral on Sunday.
