The Azipod propulsion units on Celebrity's Millennium class of vessels continue to cause problems requiring unscheduled drydocking for repairs. GTS Summit, the latest casualty, will enter drydock in San Francisco on 12 September.

>> Seven-Day cruise of 03 September has modified times on ports of call due to reduced top speed operating on one screw.

>> Seven-Day cruise of 10 September cancelled

>> Fourteen-Day Cruise of 17 September delayed until 20 September (and apparently shortened three days?)

FWIW, a traditional propulsion system would have the affected bearings within the hull where the crew could repair them evan while the ship is at sea.
