Another Fire in the Engine Room

Jump to last reply

Grand Princess suffered a fire in the engine room recently and it is the switching panel this time. It seems to be a common occurrence on cruise ships these days. Somehow, we hardly hear about them other than the Carnival Triumph back in 2013.

Le Boreal evacuated the ship after an engine room fire off the Falkland Islands in November.2015
Splendour of the Seas was on fire in October 2015. Carnival Liberty engine room caught fire in September 2015 Oceania Insignia engine room fire (with 3 dead) in December 2014. And of course, the Carnival Triumph engine room fire in 2013 which was headline news for a few days. Allure of the Sea's engine room caught fire in April 2012, and the Azamara Quest suffered the same faith a month earlier, just to name a few.

This time Princess Cruise offered a 100% refund and free transportation back to San Francisco (via air or stay on board) after a fire in the engine room on their recent Hawaii cruise originated from San Francisco. Would you be happy with the compensation?

The link below is a list of Cruise ships fires from 1979 to the present (not counting the 4 above from 2015), Is there more fire on cruise ships than anyone of us think?
