Royal Princess not expected to miss next cruise

Royal Princess not expected to miss next cruise

By Tom Stieghorst
Princess Cruises said it does not anticipate having to cancel the Sept. 27 cruise from Barcelona of the Royal Princess.

The newest Princess ship ended its most recent cruise early because of an unexpected power blackout.

Passengers departed in Naples, three days short of Barcelona, and were given a full refund and a voucher for a 25% credit on a future cruise.

Princess said it expects technicians to complete repairs on the ship while it sails without passengers to Barcelona. The next cruise is a 12-day Mediterranean itinerary that ends in Venice.
