Any recent news/updates of the Allure dry docking to fix the propulsion system on the 21st? Hopefully the new propeller is waiting for the Allure at the dry dock!:27_sunglasses:

I'd love to know too...I know that Allure had bearings issues in one of it's azipods...I'd love to know if this is a revisit of that. I know that propellors take quite a while to be manufactured...not sure if a few months is enough time.

Maybe if they took their time, she wouldn't have to go in for the same repair!  lol

That dry dock repair was for a bearing in 2015. The 2018 repair, next week, is to replace a damaged propeller. How did it get damaged? Who knows, there's a lot of crap floating out there in the open ocean. :27_sunglasses:

Ok, My Bad!  We sail on her 3/18, I am sure everything will be fine and dandy

My guess is a shipping container.  They fall off cargo ships from time to time.  Apparently one propellor blade was dinged.  The imbalance and bent blade caused a lot of vibration and issues.  They cut off some metal to make it more streamlined but now it wasn't balanced.  The result was speed restrictions causing the high speed run to St Kitts to be impossible.  This caused itinerary updates.  Western Caribbean routes don't need the high speed leg so they were okay.  

This is based on some unconfirmed tidbits so who knows.  Maybe they ran over a Carnival tug boat.

We’ve disembark from AOS this Sunday – crew members was very happy with week off  in Bahamas :10_wink:. Most of casino stuff are planning to take few weeks off and then restart on Symphony.

However, we have experienced bumpy ride compared to the previous cruises. I was wondering if damaged propeller caused that because we had relatively good weather. Unfortunately, I‘ve missed meeting with officers so could not confirm my suspicions.
