Default Millie has problems -again

For the second week in a row the Millie is having difficulties in Alaska

Last weeks cruise was cut short due to electrical problems with the Azipods. Seems to be similar issues again.

Compensation last week was very good. Passengers could stay onboard until Tuesday when they deadheaded to Vancouver. The received a full refunded plus a future certificate at the value the had paid for their cruise.

The ship left Vancouver for it's trip north and got at as far as Ketchican where it is now and will be for at least another day apparently.

There has not been an announcement of what the compensation will be but apparently it has been announced there will be some compensation.

I understand the majority of the passengers are handling it very well and making lemonade from the lemons they were handed.

For some people, last week and this, are a trip of a lifetime and no doubt there is a lot of disappointment. We will have to see what happens come tomorrow with both compensation and/or the rest of the cruise.
