MIAMI -- Royal
Caribbean International pulled the plug on its plan to hinge the
bow on the Enchantment of the Seas when the ship is lengthened next
The original plan
was to allow the tip of the bow to flip up in order to squeeze the
lengthened ship into the Panama Canal locks. But a spokeswoman said
that since the ship isnt scheduled to go through the Canal, the
hinge project was put on hold.
Since ... the
installation time is so fast, it doesnt hurt us to wait until the
ship actually has a schedule to go through [the canal] to put
hinges on the bow, she added.
