The Carnival Sunshine listed badly to its side for a few hours after leaving port Sunday evening.
Passengers received a note from the captain saying “an electrical switchboard malfunction impacted the use of the fin stabilizers.”
Passengers on board tweeted about the unnerving incident.
@CarnivalCruise get me off this ship Carnival Sunshine. We just listed so bad that I am not comfortable being in this shop anymore. Water ran out if the pools glasses shattered in my room and drink spilled in my suitcase!
@Daviesgravey tweeted “Last night was a very scary experience on the Sunshine,” and “The starboard side literally felt like it lifted. I was in the dining room on 3. All the tables slid and fell over, glass falling and breaking. People screaming. And all we get is, ‘It’s being investigated.’”

In a statement to USA TODAY, Carnival acknowledged a “video transmitter” was found during a full investigation by the shipboard team, but says it “was not connected to an electrical source and not capable of recording.”
“This is certainly a unique and unusual occurrence and it is unclear who or why this transmitter was placed in the guest’s stateroom,” the statement said. “The safety and security of our guests and crew is of paramount importance and we have taken measures so that this sort of situation does not happen again.”
