No, it will drift around beam on (side on) to the wind and waves until repaired. A cruise ship will roll in this case and can be uncomfortable. Gladly it doesn't happen very often.

Most ships have more than one engine - most of the bigger ships have at least four (of which they are using two at any one time while the others can be repaired). There are secondary / back-up power sources should the ship lose power so this wouldnt be a problem.

They do dock and the engine is off then, no they do not sink in port either.

Adonia back with P&O

By Gemma Coles

Gemma Coles's blog

 It doesn’t seem that long ago when we said goodbye to the P&O Adonia. P&O Adonia left the fleet in 2015 with much sadness to lots of passengers.

Carnival Group have now announced that after an upgrade to the ship, with the addition of a new rest...
