Rhapsody of the Seas strikes reef

Posted by RCI fans on December 7, 2013 at 5:15 AM

Rhapsody of the Seas has been delayed for 12 hours after the ship struck a reef in the South Pacific.




According to claims, the ship was caught in a very violent storm, which caused the ship to come into contact with a nearby reef, close to Champagne Bay, Luganville and Vanuatu.


The ship was able to continue to Luganville under her own power where the ship had to be delayed for 12 hours while repairs were made.

Violent Storm......I was on the ship and the weather was perfect for the full 12 days from Sydney to Vanuatu, New Caledonia and back to Sydney. Don't know where the storm information comes from.

I concur with Adam.....what storm???? let alone a "violent" one. We were 1st time cruisers & experienced fantastic conditions on this voyage. Maintenance was carried out, apparently to correct a problem with minor hull corrosion according to the Capt which delayed our departure from Luganville & caused us to miss our scheduled port call to Mystery Island which was disappointing but hey, "that's life!" - unexpected things happen & you just go with the flow. Got extra OBC as a form of compensation & as the entire cruise was awesome, in the end it was a minor glitch for us.

This is not true. There was no storm and the ship did not hit any reef. There was a problem with water ingress from a leaking seal and it had to be dealt with before the ship sailed. YOU NEED TO GET YOUR FACTS RIGHT - this sort of information you post here is seen by thousands of people.
