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 .

Explorer sailed on time and at 9.50GMT this evening and she was seen passing under the Verrazzano Bridge on schedule.

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 .

It’s made up of different suburbs, the most notable one being Fairhaven with it’s old world charm.Our hotel for the night was the beautiful Bellwether Hotel. We each had our own huge suite decorated in traditional style complete with everything you could want during your stay i...

MUSICAS PORTS OF CALL.

Last time I told you all about the ship so this week we will talk about the reason we actually chose this cruise, it’s itinerary. I have been to Venice a few times now but the sail away never loses it’s excitement for me. When standing on deck I still get goose bumps as this massive ship glides slowly past all the major sights of this charming city. So close you can see into windows and see the faces of the lovers sailing on the romantic Gondola rides. It is unbelievable at how c...
