Default NCL Star's Rescue

"NORWEGIAN CRUISE LINE'S Norwegian Star missed its weekly call at Fanning Island
in Kiribati in order to rescue a crew of 11 onboard an Indonesian-flagged ship
that had been adrift without power or communications for 22 days, according to
NCL. The Star spotted a flare from the drifting ship April 2 about 220 miles
south of the Big Island. The ship suffered a fire and explosion, which killed
one crew member and seriously burned a second. The Star re-routed its itinerary
so it could bring the ship within helicopter range to transport the injured
sailor to Honolulu. The Star spent an extra day on Maui and some time cruising
the Napali coast of Kauai."

I heard a piece on the radio this morning; the AP Network news reports that the Captainís dog was not allowed to board the Star. A massive effort was underway by the ASPCA of American and a couple other animalís rights agencies to save the pouch. Unfortunately the Captainís dog went down with the ship before it could be retrieved.
