Hey aplmac,

From the horse's mouth (RCI spokeman):

"The propulsion motors are simply large and complicated and involve a lot of wiring...(which need to be disconnected and them reconnected - and tested)...........all of which take time to deal with......"

I'm almost certain they stay onboard, but will try to confirm this with RCI PR.

Now that's an electrical problem.

Guess they didn't want to scare people and call it what it really is
...a propulsion problem of an electrical nature

People were assuming just that elsewhere on the Cruise Critic boards. And not surprising, with the previous propulsion issues.
