VgsBby Posted May 16, 2017 #1 Share Posted May 16, 2017 Hello, I'm on board the Island Princess, we have just completed an amazing day viewing the glaciers in Galcier Bay National Park. This morning about 7:30 there was an emergency announcement for a fire in the deck 4 engine room. We were having breakfast in the Horizons buffet area. About 5 minutes later, the general emergency alarm was sounded and all crew were called to their emergency stations. They remained for about 30 minutes before being released. We were advised that the fire was struck pretty quickly and that we were in no danger. We continued a fantastic day in Glacier Bay NP. Shortly after dropping the rangers, inspectors from coast guard boarded the ship as we sat still in the water. They were onboard for about 1 and a half hours and now we are continuing in. The captain has done a great job keeping us informed of the situation. He advised the fire was due to a leaking oil pipe in the engine room. We have no indication that the itinerary will be altered in any way. Ben Sent from my SM-G950U using Forums mobile app Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
