Cruise Ship Fire
Was it a disaster waiting to happen? Recently obtained court documents have revealed some new information regarding the troubled voyage of the Carnival Cruise Ship Triumph where 4-thousand passengers were stranded aboard what’s now known as the “poop cruise” after a debilitating fire knocked out the ships power.
For the second time this year, a fire at sea has aborted a cruise ship’s voyage. This time, aboard Royal Caribbean’s Grandeur of the Seas and the ship’s 2,200 passengers were expected back in Baltimore on Tuesday after being flown on charter flights from the Bahamas.
Passengers aboard Royal Caribbean’s Grandeur of the Seas got an unexpected wake up call early Monday morning.
A leak in a fuel oil line caused the engine room fire which disabled the Carnival Triumph cruise ship in the Gulf of Mexico.
Tug boats are preparing to tow a disabled Carnival Cruise Line ship to Alabama after aborting a plan to take it to Mexico.
