Engine Room Fire Delays P&O Oriana

Engine Room Fire Delays P&O Oriana

The P&O Oriana returned to the Port of Miami on April 18 after a fire broke out in its engine room, the cruise ship’s UK-based owner and operator P&O Cruises confirmed to World Maritime News in an emailed statement.

According to P&O Cruises’ Head of Public Relations Michele Andjel, the fire ”was a minor, localised fire in the engine room which was swiftly extinguished and at no time affected the safety of passengers or crew.” 

Following the incident, the US Coast Guard performed a mandatory inspection, which caused a delay in the ship’s itinerary, and omission of the scheduled call to Key West.

”Oriana left Miami at 08:00 local time yesterday morning to sail directly to New Orleans to arrive on Tuesday morning. Passengers received GBP 100 per person as either on board credit or a future cruise credit as a gesture of goodwill,” Andjel said.
