The ship sailed from Britain and made stops in Portugal, Barbados, Mexico and New Zealand, but it had technical problems on its way to the Australian city of Adelaide. According to passengers, the ship drifted on the spot for about four hours, and on board there was no electricity, water and toilets did not work. Some of the travelers complained about the complete lack of light in the cabins, while others jokingly nicknamed the ship “Fiasco da Gama”.

“The ship looked like a ghost. He was driven by the wind, and the liner simply circled in place, ”one of the passengers explained. Another added that due to a breakdown, many tourists missed the plane and missed the flight home.

As a result, the ship arrived at its destination four hours later. A Cruise and Maritime Voyages spokesman commented on the incident, adding that a power outage was a precaution.
