Third Carnival Cruise Ship Having Trouble at Sea -- April 1, 2013
Passengers are making their return home from sea as mechanical problems crippled three different Carnival Cruise liners, cutting guests' vacations short.
Two thousand passengers aboard the Carnival Honolulu are on their way back to San Pedro, California, after a technical problem with a poolside barbecue caused ventilation issues.
A Carnival spokesman said "Technical issues will occur from time to time. We take each one seriously."
The Carnival spokesman went on to insist that potential vacation goers should still choose the company, saying, "We provide enjoyable vacations to 4.5 million people each year. It is important to remember that in most instances guest and crew safety was not compromised."
