Regent Seven Seas Voyager - Cruises Canceled, But On The Way For Repairs

Regent Seven Seas Voyager has sailed from Piraeus to Marseille for drydock repairs to its podded propulsion system.  Traveling at 14.3 knots (well below her normal cruising speed, but certainly sailing competently) she is expected to arrive in Marseille early in the afternoon on Sunday. 
Although the time needed for repairs won’t be known until the ship is out of the water, Regent is currently working on a return to service date of Oct. 27. That cruise is a 12-night voyage from Athens to Barcelona. Last year when the system underwent repairs at T. Mariotti in Genoa, Voyager was out of service for approximately four weeks.
