Small Fire Breaks Out On The Norwegian Escape

May 13, 2022

A small fire broke out in the engine room technical area on the Norwegian Cruise Lines’ ship Norwegian Escape yesterday morning, after the vessel departed from Civitavecchia on a 10-day round-trip to Greek Isles and Italy. 

Code Bravo was sounded on the ship's PA system and the firefighting teams were quickly dispatched to the affected area. 

The incident was localized in the compartments 16 and 17 on deck 2, and none of the crew or guest areas has been affected. During the incident Norwegian Escape reduced speed due to technical reasons and therefore the next port of call, Santorini was canceled.

There was an announcement by the captain informing guests sailing aboard Norwegian Escape, saying that the incident was in a technical area in one of our engine spaces and the situation is now under control. 

”Please rest assured that the situation is under control and all our crew is in their positions and addressing the situation. The incident is localized in compartments 16 and 17 on deck 2, and we will give you further updates so you can continue with normal routines. The ship is sailing with reduced speed so we can complete our assessment of the affected area and the ship will resume its original speed and proceed on our course.”

A video of the announcement was shared by DB the Irish Cruiser
