I saw on another board that the Millenium's cruise for 3/28 was cancelled. Just wondering what happened.

With the Infinity propulsion systems failing yet again, the 4/11 Panama Canal cruise is now using the Millenium, rather than the Infinity

let me add a little more information:
Infinity developed some bearings problems in one of the Mermaid pods (back in mid of March going around Cape Horn). It was going a little slower but it made it back (after missing some ports) to FLL on schedule. The right decission was made by RCCL to swap the intineraries of Infinity with the Millennium (affecting less people and minimizing the loss of revenue). Millennium took over from 3-28-04 to 4-25-04 the Panama Canal route. Infinity went for one week to dry dock to have repairs done and it took over the weekly route of Millennium.
People who were on the 3-28-04 Millennium original intinerary received their money back and a free cruise (my nice was affected but was not too unhappy) people that were scheduled to be on the 3-28-04 Infifnity route got their cruise as planned but on the Millennium instead.
I was on that cruise, which turned out to be as perfect as it can be.
