From another web site, I've read the Dream last week pulled into Cosumel, Roatan, and Belize on time. At times, the Dream was traveling at 18 knots. Looks like the Dream's broken diesel engine has been fixed, or repaired, without a drydock.
Since the diesel broke down in late June, it took NCL 5 months to repair it. Most of that time was consumed waiting for spare parts to be manufactured and shipped to the ship.
Now some bad news. The Star is reporting high vibrations from the forward thrust bearings on its azipods. A drydock is scheduled for the Star in March 2006 to replace the thrust bearings.
Meanwhile, the Star cannot travel at full speed of 25 knots and is limited to 20 knots. The Star's itinerary has been changed, dropping Acapulco and Zihuatanejo/Ixtapa, but adding Manzanillo and Mazatlan.
The Star is also returning to LA two hours (9:00 am) later than previously (7:00 am) scheduled. You might want to reschedule any flights to a later departure. I recommend scheduling return flights at least 4 hours after the ship arrives, a longer interval if you can. The Star will not resume its original itinerary until April.
Here's the NCL press release for the Star:
