Carnival Vista has been through a really hard time and we’ve covered the ship extensively here on Cruise Hive. The vessel is currently suffering from a propulsion issue which is affecting the azipod system. Several cruises have been canceled so a repair can be made.

This is to repair the propulsion issue as the regular dry dock at the Grand Bahama Shipyard is out of service due to damage in April, you can learn more about how it was damaged here.

Carnival Vista will resume regular cruises out of Port of Galveston, Texas on July 27. From then on we hope the large vessel which only entered service in 2016 will have no more issues.
