This is horrible news..You just ain’t kidding that it is bad news. We get on the Mariner on Saturday in Rome. Voyager’s problem is with one of the azimuthing pods I understand. Mariner has identical pod propulsion. This on top of the threat warning to US travelers in Europe and before that the nut case preacher in Florida going to burn Islam bibles, just before we visit multiple Arab countries for a month.
Regent is trying to arrange transit home for 700 people plus staff so really messy.Another post quoted Regent as stating that they had a drydock in Genoa.
Wow! Don, thanks so much for posting that photograph and for the explanation. In the case that you described, could this be repaired by replacing parts. . . . or, does the entire pod need to be replaced? Just read that the October 17th cruise has been cancelled. I do hope the ship is back at sea soon as I feel badly for the crew, the passengers and. . . even my favorite ship -- she cannot be happy just sitting in port
