Passengers aboard the Carnival Dream cruise ship got quite a scare when water began flooding into over 50 staterooms after leaving New Orleans Thursday evening. Passenger Marla DeAnn Haase shared a dramatic video of water gushing into hallways aboard the cruise ship Carnival Dream.

The water flooding into the cruise ship was not due to a drastic leak but rather a faulty fire suppression system was the cause of the leak. 50 of the ship's staterooms on Deck 9 were flooded as a result of a broken pipe in the ship's fire suppression system. The cruise ship had just left the port in New Orleans and was five days into a week-long cruise around the Western Caribbean.
Haase wrote on Facebook, "Um….FB folks…..this is a rare moment of internet connection ….we are flooding on a cruise, we heard the violins and the silverware all came crashing down. What in the world….say a prayer for is all." A representative from Carnival said, "Our onboard teams began cleanup immediately related to this clean water from a fire suppression system. We appreciate our guests’ understanding and sincerely apologize for this disruption. We also thank our crew members for their quick action and hard work."

Senior cruise director for Carnival Cruise Lines John Heald said guests impacted by the flooding on the Carnival Dream will receive a full refund and a 50% credit for future cruises. "On Thursday, May 3 at approximately 6 pm, there was a water line break on Carnival Dream that impacted guests in approximately 50 staterooms on Deck 9. Our onboard teams began cleanup immediately related to this clean water from a fire suppression system," Heald wrote on Facebook.

Haase and other passengers were relocated in the wake of the flooding to the ship's spa where she and her family members slept on yoga mats. So much for a luxury cruise!
