Just seems funny that RCL and NCL don't seem to be having these problems. I don't know the difference in engine designs but I think that Carnival would do good to look at a different engine builder for their future ships.

Might be a interesting topic for Paul Motter to look into, to see if their engine builders are different then the other major cruise lines.
They have problems with their NEWEST engines as well. The Carnival Magic specifically.
