As they were heading out, a lady spotted some dolphins and yelled out that she was seeing dolphins. Since they just love them dolphins (and corndogs), all the fat chicks ran to the one side of the boat at once to take a look.

Was it a steering problem or a stabilizer malfunction?
In all the reports I heard no one mentioned the ship turning suddenly. Sounds more like the stabilizer gyro went out and caused the stabilizer planes to radically pitch in opposite directions.
I know the new ships don't use rudders. They have steerable Azipods. I can't imagine those systems going haywire.
