PORT CANAVERAL, FL. (CNN) – The Carnival Ecstasy returned to Port Canaveral early this (Thursday) morning after a brief power failure at sea.
A mechanical problem knocked out the power but it was quickly restored, according to carnival officials.
Power on the ship was out for about 12-minutes.
The ship was on the last leg of a five-day cruise.
Carnival is planning a 300-million-dollar upgrade to emergency power systems and other systems to prevent another repeat of the problems on the Carnival Triumph.
