The port issues are affecting the eastern Caribbean runs but not the western itinerary. I think they will go forward with changing the ships and send Allure to Europe first, instead of Oasis. There are no shipyards other than Newport News that have a drydock large enough for these ships, so going to Europe is the only option for repairs. Newport News keeps their large drydocks full of aircraft carriers - either those undergoing refits or the new Gerald Ford class carriers.
