Sept.20-2016 Emerald Princess caught fire in engine room during a voyage from Southampton to Las Palmas. The fire alarm was activated after smoke engulfed the engine room and lower decks.The fire was caused by suspected fuel leak in the engine room, which inflames and caused thick smoke in some compartments. The water tight doors had been closed and the fire fighters were moving into position and crew stopped generators one and four. The crew started CO2 firefighting system and extinguished the flames in short time without causing any danger for the passengers on board. The passengers were informed about the incident later after the situation was put under control.
