Default Re: Re: dry dock

PapaBill or anyone - Is it true the shipbuilder usually does the drydocking as well? In the case of Carnival Destiny, would that be somewhere in Italy? Near Trieste? Also, if you know, one article said that the crew stick with the ship over the dry dock period. Think so? Another dry dock query, what is meant by SOLAS compliant and does the country of registry require certain upgrades or overhauls or is that at the discretion of the owners protecting their investment? Finally, if Destiny is too old (1996) does that mean no Azipods, or can they be economically retrofitted in place of shaft & screw? Thanks, Dave in Mich. (Destiny 16 October S. Juan)
