A ship is not a good place to fight a fire, let alone a ship in drydock also takes away another semi-Safe path of escape for Firefighters if things go south...(Over the rail)

Unreal. no luck at all.

Lemme tell yah...one of our few cruises on CARNIVAL were on TRIUMPH...it docked in NO, usually with a NCL ship astern of it. Remember to "poop cruise from hell"? well, we weren't on that nightmare, but I figured that it just HAD to be the safest ship around after they repaired it etc etc...so we booked it..(against her better judgment)...second day out, we just happened to be in our cabin regrouping, when there was...wait for it..a power outage...lasted mebbe 10 minutes give or take...but the ship went dead silent (fortunately not dead in the water)...virtually every balcony had people looking out at...each other...it came back on and we immediately went to the nearest bar...my excuse was the ice could be melting...haven't cruised on CARNY since...but...one never knows do one?? hehehe

Actually, having been on a few ships in dry dock, having a fire onboard is not unheard of. When you have grinding, welding, etc., it can happen.

Agreed...but THIS ship, has a bit of a track record...old timers have another name for it...but who believes in that stuff....what they need to do is rename it...then, everything will be OK...riiiiight!

uhh, maybe! best I got.

At least you have shore support to put it out and keep people safe.

They hadn't put the new name on it yet. Maybe the new name will un-jinx (don't know if that's really a thing, but it is now) the ship.

It was a docked ship being worked on and updated. Not a cruise fire.

Welding can cause an accidental fire because of sparks. NO problem they got it under control.

Time to call the Winchester brothers from Supernatural, their assignment for season 15,,, the Triumph.
