The line today canceled five more sailings of the vessel so it can undergo repair work at a shipyard in the Bahamas and said the ship wouldn’t return to service until July 12.

Royal Caribbean already had canceled a sailing on the ship scheduled to begin on May 31. The new cancellations affect sailings scheduled to depart on June 7, 14, 21 and 28, and on July 5.

Royal Caribbean also said the incident will reduce the earnings of parent company Royal Caribbean Cruises by 10 cents a share, or about $22 million. The announcement came after trading closed on Wall Street.
