    Hmmm.. resembles the Rgland navy. Perhaps Carnival can make a bid to run it?

    There was a problem on the P&O Oceana on Friday last week, something to do with the rear thrusters losing the electricity supply from the control cabinets. Had to anchor off Portsmouth to effect a repair as the ship could not manoeuvre properly and it did not dock in Southampton until 09.30 (should have been 02.30).

    There does seem to be a shortfall somewhere on the inverters used for control purposes. It may be underspecced design or the components themselves not being up to standards after some years of use (my 'guess' based on practical experience) but it is making the whole industry look very bad indeed.

    Remember the spate of ‘fires in the electrical system’ events? That’s where the inverters are housed.

    “The company began cutting prices to fill cabins, dropping the fare for some trips in April to as little as 38 dollars a night per person.”

    Where, and when?

    Just another illusion .......
