Norwegian Ship Hot Topic Again


Rightly or wrongly, today we feel a need to come to the defense of a ship we love (Norwegian Epic) and a country we love (France).

The Epic was built in France three years ago. Among the ship's crosses-to-bear, and there were many, was that three fires broke out during construction. Nobody came right out and said so, but there was a sense the Epic's problems began when Norwegian decided to built its 11th ship in France. Most cruise ships are built in Germany and Italy.

Yesterday, a fire broke out on Norwegian's Getaway, which next year will become the line's 13th and finest ship. Is anybody superstitious about 13?

The effect of the fire was minimized almost as quickly as the "blaze" was extinguished. It was made to sound minor, but was major enough for there to be "significant smoke formation" and for the fire department to be called and for all shipyard visitors to be evacuated.

One more thing…

The Getaway's being built in Germany.
