Default Fire on the Allure

Just got this text from my cousin who is on the Allure of the Seas (4/20/12 9:50PM)


My cousin is on the Allure right now. Just got this text:

Fire on board - All is fine but it was panic on the ship - emergency sirens - lockdown on the floors - PA announcements every few mins.


Black smoke billowing out of the top stacks - we had to change direction for a bit to make the smoke not come into the ship (although we could smell it!)

More info as I get it...

I received the following @ 20:34 EST from my parents on board this sailing:

Quote:
Please keep your e-ears open for any info. We have a fire in the number 2 engine room (This is not a drill). We have turned around to facilitate smoke removal and the fire is reportedly under control. We can smell the strong odor of an electical fire all the way up here on deck 14.

Will check email later tonight.

More later...

...love dad and mom

Praying for everyone on board. That should be the main concern right now.

Uh-oh.... looks like someone finally managed to smuggle an iron on board

In all seriousness, we first pray that everyone is ok and uninjured and next that the grand Ms. Allure comes through this with extremely minor damage and that those who are currently cruising get to complete their cruise with little more interruption

As happy as I am that no one is hurt, this really sucks! How long could this take to repair?

I hope the engine crew is O.K. Fire is very dangerous on a ship.

No idea especially on a ship that big. But with the advancements in technology nowadays I doubt she will be down for an extended period of time

That much smoke out of the engine room, would lead me to think she may be down for the count for a while or working at reduced power. Either way, not good.

I really hope everyone is ok and she did not sustain much damage. It has been one rough year for cruise ships.
