Carnival Cruise liners couldn’t seem to stay out of the headlines for the last few months, beginning with a major incident in February on the Carnival Triumph. Shortly after, the Carnival Dream also experienced problems that cut short the trip. And to top it off, the company that owns Carnival, also owns Costa Cruises, infamous for the disaster on the Concordia. Now, the latest headlines involve another cruise liner, but this time from Carnival’s competitor, Royal Caribbean.
A blaze broke out in the middle of the ships voyage, causing a substantial area to be burned. The incident didn’t cause any injuries, but will require major repairs.
Although the National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the incident, it does cause suspicion as to how all these cruise liners are receiving safe reports and heading to sea, when the safety of these ships is questionable.
