Good luck, at least you are not at sea. 

 

Maybe it's some sort of unscheduled maintenance they are doing that requires the power to be off.

Checked in and been waiting in the terminal to board for almost an hour because they can't scan passengers onto the ship.

Only the center of the ship has power. Elevators are not working. I am very fortunate I do have power.

In terminal waiting almost 3 hours to board.  I'm checked in but there are a substantial number of people still waiting to check in.  

 

They started the process to board people manually.

Consider yourself lucky this happened on the smallest ship in the fleet - imagine if this happened on say, Mariner.

Just now eating "lunch" in the Windjammer.

 

By the time they finally get everyone checked in and boarded and sort through the paper boarding cards to create a final manifest, I expect we won't l be leaving until 7 or 8 pm.

Just more lies.... after the muster drill the CD announced the problem still isn't fixed. No revised departure time announced.

We were on Empress last week so I am super curious to know what ended up happening with your trip...

Finally sailed around 11pm was 1.5 hrs late arriving at Nassau. Only RCI TV working no Satellite TV on entire trip.

We are on the empress on Nov 19th.  Do you think we will be sailing, or will they pull it for maintenance?  Have you heard anaything?

Thanks.  I hope the rest of the cruise was good.  Was it?  Was it only the first day that was messed up?  In the old days when something like that happened they would open the bar up- I guess they don't do anything for "inconvenience" anymore.  Started cruising in 1978- sure is different now!

At least the Empress departed.  Have a great cruise.   Bet lots of cruisers were disappointed because they did not have FNC or other TV channels.

Having been in charge of passing informations to people, I am very sure no one lied on purpose. There is no way for anyone, even the people working on the repair to know how long it will take, everyone is making best estimates and can only tell you what they are told. 

Seem like the biggest problem you had was having to wait 3 hours, so not the end of the world.

Comments like this are part of the reason that companies prefer not to keep passengers updated during a situation.

 

Lies are intentionally false statements. Not good faith statements that later prove to be untrue.
