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 .

Wow wow wow what an amazing experience. Thank you so much Cruise.Co.UK for allowing me to visit this most magical and diverse City. I can only describe it as a sophisticated fusion of the East and West. Where old meets new on every street.Arriving into the new sleek airport with so much space and glass, the feel of the outside is everywhere. This is a new airport built on Lantau Island approx 40 minutes from the city depending on traffic, (never seen so much) with fantastic road and rail link...
