Not a good week for the cruise ship industry.

Its kinda tough to blame a fire on Fountain.

Perhaps a tree or forrest fire, but not on a cruise ship.

A guy I work w/ was on the ship. He said it was crazy as hell, alarms started going off at 3 in the morn.. They had been to sea for 4 hours (dunno how far out that is). He said when he got to the deck the life boats had been lowered & uncovered. The guy a couple rooms down had a heart attack in the hall trying to get out. Luckily he was on the opposite side of the boat of the fire but he said the hallways were extremely smokey. Another couple they were w/ was on the side of the fire & everything in their room was burnt to a crisp.

yeah... this is a freaking laugh riot.

Is your mom on that ship too?

It will be nice when I get an email back telling me she is ok.
