Two people have now stated that the Azipod system is brand new and that the Elation is the only ship with it. The Elation was retrofitted with the azipod system in 1995. Now over 40 ships use Azipods and many many of those ship sail the Caribbean encluding Cozumel. It is hardly a brand new system. Mechanical things have a tendency to break down whether one is on vacation or not. Many of peoples vacation have been shortened or cancled because their car broke down and had to be repaired, I wonder who those people went to for compensation. Sure it is disappointing whe things do not go as planned but it is just part of life.
