- November 13, 2012, while the ship was on a Transatlantic crossing itinerary, an engine room fire incident happened. The fire caused power loss for ~2 min.
- March 20, 2014, propulsion system malfunction forced the ship to change the cruise itinerary. The problem was that the Azipod unit was loosing oil and soon shut down. To prevent oil spill incident, the ship was immediately surrounded by oil booms. When the ship was docked in St Kitts (West Indies), the engineering crew managed to fix the Azipod problem temporarily. Since the vessel had to proceed at lower cruising speed, Royal Caribbean International changed the current cruise itinerary, canceling the Southern Caribbean ports in Aruba and Curacao and replacing them with the Eastern Caribbean ports in Antigua, St Maarten and St Croix.
- March 23, 2014, the ship lost propulsion, causing a late arrival in homeport San Juan (Puerto Rico). Further propulsion problems caused a delay of the last itinerary before the drydock repairs, that started on March 30 in Bahamas.
- September 2017, the cruise itinerary September 30 – October 7 (7-day Southern Caribbean roundtrip from San Juan, Puerto Rico) was officially cancelled as the ship was chartered for evacuation (to Fort Lauderdale FL) and humanitarian operations in Puerto Rico and the USVI (St Thomas and St Croix). In September 2017, the Caribbean was devastated by hurricane Irma (category 5 tropical storm).
Crew & Passenger Death accidents
- March 6, 2010, a male Canadian passenger died collapsing while playing in the ship’s casino. The med crew succeeded in reviving him once through CPR, but the man lost pulse and stopped breathing again. They tried unsuccesfuly to revive him the second time, and pronounced him dead from natural causes.
- December 28, 2013, a 26-year-old Canadian male passenger jumped overboard from the balcony of his cabin. At the time of the accident, the man (named Tien Phuoc Nguyen) was influenced by alcohol and arguing with his family. After another passenger reported the jump, the ship stopped and turned around. Local authorities were alerted. The search and rescue operation used a local patrol boat and also MH-65 Dolphin helicopters. After ~40 min an USCG helicopter arrived and assumed responsibility for the operation, while the ship continued towards San Juan. The man’s body was never found. The ship was in Puerto Rico waters, 15 nautical miles (17 ml / 28 km) east of Mona Island. This was the last night of a 7-day Caribbean cruise roundtrip from San Juan.
