Princess Cruises was w/o power off Florida for 4 hours!

Last night, July 25th, was apparently a rough one for passengers on Princess Cruises' Emerald Princess, which lost power shortly after pulling out of Fort Lauderdale.  For 4 hours it sat off the coast looking like a giant paperweight due to some computer glitch.  The ships only 3 years old, geez.

(The Emerald Princess in better times)

"An hour out of (Fort Lauderdale) our engines quit, (and) we were a floating paperweight for four hours as they tried to repair generator and computer problems," writes one passenger today on a message board at cruise fan site "Meanwhile ... no (air conditioning), limited lights and cancellation of shows, entertainment, etc. The dinner menu was limited to a few items, and the poor waiters were melting in their uniforms."

And now passengers are going to miss their first stop, Princess Cays, the line's private beach destination in the Bahamas, due the delay.  I hope the passengers at least get some free drinks from this all!
