Default Miracle Propulsion Problems

I understand the Miracle has been having propulsion problems resulting in a lot of vibration at the stern of the ship. Can anyone confirm this and if so does anyone if Carnival is scheduling any repairs?

Thanks, Thom

Thanks, Thom
she was very recently in drydock for this problem, I think she may already be out.

Master Chief, the lovely Mrs. Jones (Vita) and I sailed "Miracle" just before Christmas, and indeed there was a bit of vibration when the Captain decided to push her a bit. At normal cruise, we didn't notice anything out of the ordinary. I hope Ms. Blackjack is correct and the pod has been repaired, as "Miracle" is one of my favorite ships.

I just found out she has been in and now is out of drydock so I guess they fixed the problems. Thanks for all the answers.

Sky, I always think its funny how you mention your wife in the exact same manner ever time you post. What would you call her if she wasnt lovely?

I am sure he would still call her lovely. At least I hope he would.
