An in-depth common cause analysis is needed, perhaps a vertical slice review of the practices at Fincantieri shipyard, an evaluation of the rigor of their quality assurance program, etc.

While these may all be separate problems (Dream, Triumph, Splendor) they all do share some commonality in basic designs and where the ships were built.

You know, Toyota makes great cars but after their spate of recalls over the past few years I am not going to run out and buy a Toyota without looking at the other brands. This latest event won't have much effect on experienced cruisers but it certainly can impact newbies searching for their first cruise.
