The Carnival Splendor is a new ship. Why would there be a fire in The Engine Room? The engines are still under warranty, right?
Let’s consider some facts: Maintenance schedule is behind on all ships. Also, everybody knows that Carnival tries to save money by having their own employees fixing the daily issues with the engine, instead of calling the Warranty Technicians. Have an inexperienced Indian boy and an Italian Staff Chief Engineer who doesn’t speak english at all and you’ve got yourself a disaster waiting to happen.
Two engine pistons blew up on the Splendor. The oil was so hot that they couldn’t put down the fire for 12 hours (Yes, that’s Twelve hours!). The blackout was so bad, they were not even able to lower the Life Boats. Imagine a full evacuation with no lifeboats!
How long do you think is gonna take until we see the Carnival Splendor sailing again? Well, it takes about 6 months and a lot of money to fix the Engine issue…
So, who’s getting fired on the Splendor?
