Default Allure-- Feb 23, 2014 cruise CANCELLED for drydock

This just reported on Seatrade:

Allure will be out a week for repairs in February

Royal Caribbean International has reached a decision on what to do about the propulsion issue on Allure of the Seas, which has slowed the ship for the past few weeks. The vessel's Feb. 23 cruise is canceled for a week of repairs at Grand Bahama Shipyard in the Bahamas.

Allure of the Seas has been experiencing unanticipated bearing wear in one of its three propulsion motors. All three motors are fully operational, the company said, and there is no impact on the maneuverability of the ship or on the safety of passengers and crew.
However, since the rate of bearing wear is directly related to speed, the ship's top speed has been limited. This has reduced the rate of bearing wear, and will ensure that all three propulsion motors are fully available for maneuvering and emergencies until repairs can be completed, the company said.
'We sincerely regret that we will be unable to deliver the Royal Caribbean cruise vacation that our guests were looking forward to,' said RCI president and ceo Adam Goldstein. 'We understand that our guests' vacation time is very precious and can assure you that we did not take this decision lightly. But it was very important to us that we bring Allure back up to speed so that she could continue to deliver the amazing cruise vacations our guests expect.'
The world's largest cruise ship entered service in 2010.
