[[This Aussie story http://www.news.com.au/story/0,23599,22813265-401,00.html]] relates how MS Explorer is “said to be dogged by maintenance woes”: it has “maintenance problems and missing […] plans”.The story also reports that “safety measures were also criticised”. Upon inspection, “problems with [MS Explorer’s] safety record were immediately highlighted […]”. That lack of plans means that “we’re not quite sure what the prognosis is yet.” “But the specialist Lloyds List […] publication said the Explorer had five “deficiencies” at its last inspection”.

That’s just for Australia, but it’s not the only country to have issue with that dodgy MS Explorer: “Chilean inspectors also found six deficiencies during an inspection in Puerto Natales in March, including two related to navigation matters”.
