The USCG requires them to use a tug in Galveston.

They still are operating on a temporary USCG approval basis and have to follow the suggestions or requirements very carefully as they have no lee way if ANYTHING else were to go wrong.

It's a combination of the crappy thruster situation AND the fact that they have lost one engine. Carnival doesn't want to talk about it!
