From the stuck away from home department:

AFP reports that the crew of the Bahamian-flagged ship Dream has been stranded in the Greek port of Rhodes for more than two weeks. Authorities in Rhodes have prohibited the ship from sailing because it is listing at about 10 degrees. Upon inspection, they found waste tanks had overflowed causing the imbalance, and other things in a state of disrepair.

The ship's 930 Israeli passengers were flown home. It is expected to take at least another week for repairs before the ship will be allowed to leave Rhodes.
