The Seabourn Sun, scheduled to arrive at Ft. Lauderdale today from a 13-day Western Caribbean itinerary, has canceled its next voyage (a 14-day Caribbean trip) due to mechanical problems. One of the ship’s two propellers began malfunctioning earlier this month, causing “excess vibration and slower speed,” according to Seabourn’s Bruce Good. No ports were missed and there were no delays but after disembarkation today Seabourn Sun will head to Charleston for repairs. The ship is expected back in Ft. Lauderdale on December 18 in what Good says will be plenty of time to gear up for her 19-day holiday extravaganza, a transcanal journey beginning on December 21 in Ft. Lauderdale that winds up in San Francisco.
