I wonder if we can find out when she will transit by tow?  CC article doesn't say, but Cruise News Daily had this to add:

   Originally, the line canceled the December 26 sailing
and planned to tow the ship to Balboa and have it repaired
there. The line now says the ship will be repaired in the
Bahamas and will tow the ship there from Isla de Coiba
where the grounding occurred.

She's sitting in Fuerte Amador.  Finally showed her AIS for a short time Sunday.

Lord knows what she is doing.  This morning she appears to be in the anchorage

But she really gets around...I am especially impressed with her ability to travel cross-country.  (Do you suppose a seagull stole her AIS?

Looks like she may finally be going into drydock in Balboa...

I give up.  She is showing all over the place, traveling at 102.3 kts. :o  CJ

It looks like she finally got her AIS straightened out, and is heading for Balboa now.

They towed her under Centennial Bridge, and left her!

Thanks ladies!

That is interesting that it takes 4 tugs to get her there and leave her.

I think there were only the tugs fore and aft.  The little one on the side is I think a pilot boat.  Maybe once through the locks they pick up a pilot to get them to Gatun.  I saw the boat leaving Regatta...

I saw the pilot boat close to her, then further away, and I caught her here:

I'm thinking they said there was water in the engine compartment, or something...CJ

I'm betting they won't head straight out to sea...Wonder if they will dock her temporarily in Cristobal?

After being MIA for weeks, she finally showed up on AIS near Freeport.  AIS has screwy track with speed 102.3kts, but I think she is docked at the point inside the port.  the ship symbol outside is dim, which means outdated....and there are no tugs around it.  Probably pulled her in a few hours ago.  CJ

I went and checked the Windstar site and her first cruise back isn't until June out of Istanbul.

This is one costly repair.

Here you go:  Leaving Freeport you see Carnival Ecstasy, Carnival Magic (in drydock) and in between, Star Pride:
