Carnival Suffers Another Fire

January 12, 2000

Carnival Corp.’s spate of bad luck continued in the new year, as a fire reportedly broke out aboard the cruise ship Celebration Wednesday, leaving the vessel adrift in the Caribbean for hours without engine and main electrical power, according to owner Carnival Cruise Lines. None of the passengers or crew were injured by the fire, which began shortly after midnight in one of three auxiliary generators as the Celebration sailed about 100 miles northwest of Montego Bay, Jamaica, Carnival said. Celebration was built in 1987. Passengers left the ship at Montego Bay and will be flown back to New Orleans, de la Cruz said.
