So I go to sleep and it was a slow day in the industry. I wake up to news that a cruise ship off of Egypt suffered a serious fire. Here is what I know so far:

  • Princess Cruises Royal Princess was cruising in the Mediterranean when a large fire broke out in her engine room.
  • It disabled her propulsion.
  • Passengers assembled at their muster stations.
  • NO abandon ship order was given.
  • Fire was successfully put out
  • Ship is anchored off of Port Said, Egypt awaiting permission to enter the port.
  • Damage and future cruises is unknown at this time.

As I hear more I will be sure to post.  Here is a photo of her from 2008300px-Royal_Princess[1]
