Coast Guard Watching Anthem Propulsion Repair

As it turns out, the storm took more of a toll on Anthem of the Seas than just the cosmetic damage that was shown in passengers’ photos. It damaged the podded propulsion system, causing one of the pods to be shut down as a precautionary measure on the return trip to Bayonne.

The Coast Guard said that during the storm all four clutches on the port side Azipod were burned out.

Details appeared in the February 12 edition of Cruise News Daily.
