Statement on Star Princess

 

 

This morning at approximately 3:10 am local time, as Star Princess was en route from Grand Cayman to Montego Bay, a fire broke out in the passenger accommodations, and spread to adjacent cabins. Passengers were immediately notified of the fire using the public address system and requested to report to their muster stations. We are currently completing a full passenger check to account for all passengers and crew.

The fire is now out, however there is still residual smoke throughout the affected area. The cause of the fire at this time is unknown.

 

The ship is carrying a total of 2,690 passengers and 1,123 crew members.

 

A full damage assessment is being carried out at this point.

 

Authorities were immediately contacted regarding the incident and we continue to work closely with all relevant parties.

 

Star Princess sailed from Fort Lauderdale on March 19 on a western Caribbean itinerary with calls at Cozumel, Grand Cayman, Montego Bay and Princess Cays.

 

A special number has been set up for inquiries from immediate family of passengers who are currently onboard: 1-800-693-7222.

Have anyone heard about a fire on a Carnival vessel on Cayman Islands?

 

How did the ship get on Cayman Islands???? I always thought they had to stay in the harbor, that is why I love this site, learn something new every day. Maybe that is WHY there was a fire!!!

 

Ecstacy caught on fire, but that was about six years ago and I thought it was in the Bahamas...

Carnival ownes them

 

Well, you know that I realize Carnival owns them - but all the other lines under Carnival's umbrella are separate entities, y'know.

 

The 'media' doesn't say "Celebrity ship or Princess ship, owned by Carnival Corporation, yada yada...." I'd venture to say that MOST folks don't know (and/or don't care). They just hear the name Celebrity or Princess.:rolleyes:

Beleive me, if you own stock in CCL, you know what they own, and what will affect them. Besides the 19% earnings drop news, this will put downward pressure on CCL stock price for awhile. :(
