Celebrity's Bermuda cruise sails late after propulsion issue

Celebrity's Bermuda cruise sails late after propulsion issue
Shortly after Celebrity Summit sailed from Cape Liberty in Bayonne, New Jersey, on Sunday, the engineering team detected a technical issue with one of the ship's propulsion motors.

'In an abundance of caution, we made the decision that the safest and most prudent action was for Celebrity Summit to return to port to assess the situation,' Celebrity Cruises said in a statement.

'Our on-board team worked on the issue and the ship departed Cape Liberty at 4 a.m. on Monday. Even with the later departure, the ship’s original itinerary will not be affected.'

Celebrity Summit's seven-night cruise includes three nights at Kings Wharf, Bermuda.
