  1. So sorry for the passengers and crew ! Having just spent a week on this ship, it is sad to hear that she is "injured". Any word on what caused the Azipod to fail ?
  2. I am so glad to know this ! I hated the idea of a whale being hurt by the ship. During the "Ask the Captain" session on board last week, someone asked him if he had ever had any significant problems while being in charge of a ship. He said he had not, in the 7 years he'd been a captain. Talk about timing !
  3. So sorry to hear about this big delay in departure. The "incident" that caused the damage was on Friday afternoon, upon departure from Half Moon Cay. Two tugboats had to guide the ship to the dock in FLL. I guess we were lucky that the ship could navigate that far, or we might still be sitting at sea ! I wonder what the cruise director will do to entertain them today. Frankly there's only two comedians and six dancers on board for the main stage shows; for a seven day cruise, HAL does not give you much "bang for the buck" when it comes to shows. This was our first HAL cruise, and from now on we are sticking with Princess and RCI. The service was great, however.
  4. We just got off the ship this morning; it was only a few minutes late coming in, but rumor is that the ship hit a whale yesterday ! There was definitely a loud noise on board. I hope it was some other technical issue and not a whale. I also hope this next sailing has better luck with the Grand Turk stop than we did - the captain had to skip the port because of high winds, so we had an extra day at sea instead.
