Default Empress of the North- Crash!

May 14, 2007

"Juneau, Alaska - A Seattle-based cruise ship that crashed on the rocks in Alaska on Monday has history of incidents and has grounded at least four times since 2002.
A Seattle-based cruise ship that crashed on the rocks in Alaska on Monday has history of incidents and has grounded at least four times since 2002.

In this latest incident, the $50 million Empress of the North crashed on the rocks just west of Juneau near Hanus Reef in Lynn Canal.

Nov 27th 2003: During the evening on a voyage up the Columbia River the vessel developed steering problems and ran aground 80 miles NW of Portland. Two crew and a passenger suffered minor injuries.

Oct. 24, 2003, while transiting a lock on the Snake River the vessel grounded with no reported injuries.

In March of 2006, it grounded on a sand bar in the Columbia near Washougal.

In March 2007, the Empress of the North had a suspected norovirus outbreak that sickened 26 passengers.

Among violations the ship was cited for was too little chlorine disinfectant in its potable water supply

Perishable foods at too-high temperatures and leaving dirty items outside of authorized areas were also violations. "

There is already a thread in this forum on this topic; why did you start a new topic.

Moderator, can you merge the two threads.

thanks,

Marc-

I made a separate thread on the Teen Forum because many teens don't go searching in the Cruise News Discussion sub-forum, so I made the information readily available to teens.

Thanks for your concern, Marc.

Thanks Marc,
I can only move the entire thread to a different folder, no way to add it to an existing thread.....So, there will be two for the moment, not a big deal.
