Carnival Dream passengers says situation was blown out of proportion

PHILIPSBURG, St. Maarten - Hundreds of the passengers that were stranded on the Carnival Dream at the Harbor on St. Maarten since Wednesday left the island on Friday via the SXM Airport.

The passengers were forced to stay on the vessel after it was discovered that the ship had encountered mechanical problems.


It is still not clear when the problem will be solved.


However, the authority on the island did all in their power to ensure that the passengers were transported to the Princess Juliana International Airport in a timely manner.


As a result, the passengers who were placed on several big buses were escorted Friday morning by the police to the airport.


Whilst on the airport, the various entities, namely the Immigration department, Airport Authority, the marketing department, security, as well as representatives of Carnival Dream did everything possible to ensure a smooth transition of the passengers.


Speaking to our news department, some passengers told us that they were happy with the way Carnival Dream handled the situation, and that some persons with their reports, blew the matter out of proportion.
