Submitted by kgnadmin on

A fire broke out today, June 25th, aboard the world's largest cruise ship, Icon of the Seas, while the vessel was docked at the port of Costa Maya, Mexico. According to our source, a Bravo code was announced on the ship's PA system, locating the fire in the engine room. Firefighting teams were dispatched to the scene to handle the situation, and the crew responded to the emergency instructions.

Shortly after the initial incident, a second emergency was announced with an Alpha code for a medical emergency at the aft gangway. Some passengers aboard the Icon of the Seas reported that the first emergency calls were for the forward engine rooms and that the ship had lost power. Currently, no one is allowed off the ship, and gangway operations are suspended.

As of now, there are no reports on the extent of the damage or information about the injuries. 

When it comes to the safety and security of its crew and passengers, Royal Caribbean takes it very seriously. Each ship has highly trained firefighting teams who practice for various scenarios. Additionally, every crew member has specific tasks assigned for emergency situations.
These crew members undergo rigorous training to prepare for such emergencies, often putting themselves at risk to protect others. Their readiness to face emergencies, such as today's fire, shows their commitment to the safety of everyone on board.
