MAIB Safety Bulletin 1/2006 (vide http://www.maib.gov.uk) covers the recent fire on this cruise ship and makes most interesting and disturbing reading.

Not many of us, I would suggest, have considered the balconies now so common on cruise ships to be a very substantial risk to the safety of these vessels. Big problems ahead for naval architects!

It looks like Starr Princess is out of refit as she is currently in Gydinia Poland
or is this more fitting out at the yard.

According to the tabloids (yes, ashamed to admit that we buy them) she is due back in service in the next week or so.
