Now out of dry dock minus one Pod so slower until later in the year when she will get it back.

Hi Paul,
I don`t think leaving the pod behind for repairs in Hamburg will make her any slower then she already was since it happened because the pod was out of order anyway with all the blades gone. I think she did quite well with 3 out of 4. The date for getting the pod back is November 12 to 17.
Regards Manfred

I was on QM2 LA-Hawaii after the pod was damaged (but before it was removed), and we were doing up to 27 knots at times. I don't know if that was top speed, but it was certainly impressive.
