Please keep us updated if you can.
I did see on the live cam that you were late leaving last night.
It is great to get live information though,
Many thanks.

Hopefully they will get the issue sorted, she sure did leave and arrive late. Looking at the tracking history from last night, seems she couldnt get past 14.8 knots.

NAPOLI 2013-06-11 Departure 20:57 Local Time
MESSINA 2013-06-12 Arrival 10:14 Local Time

I wondered about this also.
The news media would have a free for all with this news, unless they've been waiting already for more to happen.

Its a fair point and something you would have thought the engineers at carnival would have made sure it would cover.

Ships have this issue from time to time, i was due to embark the Norwegian EPIC on its maiden voyage from Southampton a few years ago, it was 6 hours late from the ship yard as could only sail at reduced speeds.

I could almost write the story for CNN. "As Carnival Cruise Line's fumigated and scrubbed Triumph returns to service in Galveston, after the excrement-filled cruise from hell in February, another aging Carnival ship, the Destiny, which they're now passing off as the Sunshine, is having propulsion problems in Europe, this on top of the struggling cruise line's decision to abandon the European market altogether".

You can polish a 18 year old ship make it look brand new but its still a 18 year old ship

OP, I hope they get things straightened out quickly and you and all the other passengers can enjoy the rest of your cruise.
