Default Carnival Sunshine with Propulsion Problems

Looks like the Destiny engine issues continue today.

Wasn't 'limping', just a bit slower than normal due to a 'minor technical issue'. Said they were 2 hours late coming into port so they're going to stay 2 hours longer to make up for it. But the problem has been fixed and everything is back to normal.

We've been on several ships where minor problems occur and they were never reported worldwide as major issues. Things like this happen to alot of ships, but it just seems lately everyone is becoming alot more aware of them, reporting them more widely, and blowing minor issues out of proportion.

If you drive your car long distances 365 days a year, occasionally you have to make some repairs and it'll be out of service for a few hours or a couple of days. And ships are obviously much more complex than a car, plus they don't have the luxury of being able to be out of service for a few hours or a few days to fix problems. So they are constantly performing preventive maintenance. Still, things happen and should just be taken in stride.
