Just back from 10 days on the Dawn and yes there is a problem of premature wear on some bearings that deal with the propulsion system of the ship. It is no big deal and the ship does 20 knots rather than it's normal 25 - 26 knots. The problem will have to be fixed in dry dock and a man who works in the engine room told me that he thinks it will be fixed in Boston but did not know when. They did change our itinerary and instead of going to their 'private island' in Bahamas we made a stop in Samana, Dominican Republic. If anyone has any questions about the crusie I would be happy to answer.
