The events listed have been reported in the public domain or to cruisejunkie by passengers or crew members onboard.  The list is by no means comprehensive.  For that reason it is necessary to be cautious in drawing conclusions from the potentially limited data.  Keep in mind that some companies may be more transparent than others about things that go wrong; conversely, some companies may be better at concealing events and thereby project an appearance that is inaccurate.  With that said, the following list is still interesting, as are the patterns when viewed separately by ship.

Transferred to Costa in 2001 (Costa Tropicale) ... Transferred to P&O Australia in 2005 and became Pacific Star ... in 2008 it was sold to Pullmantur and became Ocean Dream
The ship's sewage system clogged up, forcing the company to offer passengers the option of flying home from Cozumel (with a full refund and free airfare) or staying onboard and receiving a 75% refund.
Toilet problems
An engine room fire left the ship adrift for two days in the Gulf of Mexico.  Power was restored and the ship was escorted back to Tampa.  Passengers complained about sewage backups and lack of water for showers and sinks.
Stuck on sandbar will attempting to leave Tampa.  The ship was pulled free by tugboats, but will miss a port call at Grand Cayman.
