Update on the Royal Princess Fire

June 23, 2009

Word from the ship is that it was a fuel pump that exploded (I use this term loosely) causing the fire. The damage was more than initially thought, thus requiring a shipyard repair. The yard has not been chosen yet, but there are an assortment of places in the Mediterranean to choose from. They may not have much of a choice though, as one would assume that she may not be able to move under her own power, thus requiring an oceangoing tug.
