QE2 Plagued by More Problems

July 26, 1987|From Reuters

LONDON — The luxury liner Queen Elizabeth 2 was limping back to England from Gibraltar on Saturday after suffering the latest in a series of technical problems since a $160-million refit earlier this year.

A spokesman for Cunard, the British operators, said the 1,800 passengers would be compensated for delays during their six-day cruise to Portugal and Gibraltar.

The liner had to make an emergency call for two engine parts to be flown to it from England on Friday. It is due back in Southampton today, four hours late.

In May, Cunard promised to compensate passengers sailing on the refitted liner's first voyage from Southampton to New York after they complained about a wide range of problems.
