I’ve heard from a passenger who was on Oriana. He’s described the events as they appeared to him, and has given me permission to quote him. Here’s what he said:

“Just after 8am on the 2nd Jan all power was lost – no engines, no electricity other than emergency lighting, no water on tap and no flushing of toilets. Passengers were updated with not much news throughout the day but auxiliary power was restored after about two hours. Main engines were running again after around 8 hours so we were under way at 4.30pm. Fortunately the sea was calm (as were the passengers) and the blue skies gave us time to top up our tans!”

Many thanks to Michael for this contribution. Seems that we’re still in the dark as the cause of the problem. And if anyone else has some experiences to share, please send me a comment.
