Carnival Cruise Ship Suffers Fire During Transformation

By ,   March 23, 2019 ,   Accidents

Carnival Triumph, currently being drydock-converted into Carnival Sunrise, suffered a fire on her Deck 4, while in Navantia Cadiz Spain for repair work.

The fire occurred on Friday, March 22, on the ship's deck 4, where welding work was carried out to assemble the cabins' new expanded structures.

When the fire occurred, the relevant protocol in this type of situation was activated, forcing the eviction of the hundreds of workers who were inside the vessel at that time to control the accident. As a result of the operation, the team of the naval constructor was able to control the fire.

No injuries due to the accident were reported. The workers resumed their work, once the area was cleaned up to continue with the schedule for Carnival Sunrise's delivery.

Carnival Triumph arrived in Navantia Cadiz on March 12 to undergo a modernization that includes, among other things, the installation of a couple of large structures to house new cabins. The shipyard moved the leisure space which occupies the theater and open space for the placement of the two huge pieces.
