you think the Vista is going to get stuck at sea during the final cruise before it goes into dry dock for the propulsion issues it's been having?

 

😄😂🤣

It sure didn't take long for this problem to come up.  Where was it built?  Of course, if it's an engine thing, I imagine the engine is built somewhere else.

Not sure but I do feel for those who had their cruises cancelled and the poor agents answering the phones at Carnival.

That would be rather embarassing to CCL if that happened. Have they ever said what the problem was?

From what I've read, it's the Azipods that are causing the problem.  Something about the bearings.  They are what propels and steers the ship.  Think of it as an electric motor with the propeller attached to it.  There is another posting on here that shows what they look like.
