Found on another site today ----report from onboard --- We just spoke to RCL and they acknowledged that the propeller was damaged. They stated they will arrive in NJ at around 1am Sun morning and have a dive crew and a new propeller waiting. They said there should be no delay in our time of departure. They also said that these things happen more frequently than people realize but they are accustomed to dealing with it because the ships are in use 24/7. Hopefully, this is accurate information .

She is underway with passengers on board they could not fix her starboard prop, so she is running on 2 props at reduced speed maybe ? they will fix her in st Thomas i think it is matter of balancing the new prop.

We just returned from our Jan 23rd to Feb 1st Cruise. We missed Labedee because of vibrations coming from the propeller (so we were told by the captain). We limped straight back to NJ after leaving Samana. Divers went into the water Jan 29th. Captain said that the dive was inconclusive. We arrived NJ Sunday Feb 1st @ 0500 .

Today is part 1 with part 2 to follow next time. Here goes!The idea of a cruise never really ‘floated my boat’. Hundreds actually thousands of people lumped onto a vessel, fighting for space and corralled for a least a week . No- not for me. On the other hand , if your partner is employed by one of the largest cruise travel agenci...

Well I am back from my Italian holiday and I paid a visit to Trento, the capital city of Trentino Alto Adige in the north of Italy nestled between the Alps. The drive to Trento was lovely and the view driving through by car was amazing, we were surrounded my mountain by their white tips all the way there. Verona to Trento is about 1 hour and there are good train connections.We visited an Aeronautical museum of Giovan Battista Caproni, one of the most important engineers of Aeroplane’s h...

It seems to me these days that people spend so much time moaning and whingeing about this and that, nothing works like it should and nothing is ever good enough, I thought it nice to share the thoughts of this refreshingly positive chap recently stranded on the NCL Star out in Australia.Francis Lahue and his wife were passengers of the Norwegian Star as it faced engine problems last Friday morning after leaving port. The luxury cruise ship was forced to bob without direction 30km off the coas...
