Default Is Dawn OK?

I have recently read on another board about problems with the Dawn Princess. Has anyone else heard anything? Apparently there are problems with docking and a tug is being used for assistance. I hope this is just a bad rumour as we board her in 41 days. Please inform good or bad.

I saw lots of messages on another board as well. Supposedly they did need to use a tug but the ship is fine now. It will be going into dry dock in the fall sometime to be worked on but I don't know if that is related.

I leave in 4 days on the Dawn, so "fingers crossed" it will be OK.

In February the Dawn was experiencing a lot of vibration and noises. This happened every time we entered or left a port. The vibrations would have moved glass ware off of shelves if they had not been shelf guards. The noise sounded like gears grinding and was very loud. We were awoken every time we entered a port.

Just read a review from someone who just got off the Dawn and things seem to have improved. All accounts seem to indicate that it is a great ship and the problems have been addressed.

Thanks for your responses.
