Default Minor fire aboard Allure Of The Seas
News reports are saying a small fire occurred aboard Allure Of The Seas last night as the ship was returning to Port Everglades. The fire was confined to a one of the engine rooms and was quickly extinguished by the automatic fire suppression system, which deluged the space with a water mist (fog).

No impacts to the cruise or passengers occurred and the ship continued on it's course home without further problem.

These things happen a lot more than one may realize, but given the current media spotlight on the cruise industry they are reporting anything and everything and when possible making it sound like a huge accident. In this case I wouldn't be surprised if it was just a loose fuel fitting that sprayed a little fuel oil that ignited, or more likely an electrical short.

So - don't worry if you have an upcoming Allure cruise. It won't be cancelled.

Exactly what's supposed to happen in this situation, and all went as it should. Of course, many of the media outlets miss that point.
