The "Norway" had an onboard explosion in one of the boilers last year while docked in Miami.... There are many postings on what took place. The ship was towed to Germany and is currently tied up at a ship yard. Supposedly it is awaiting a new boiler to be custom built and scheduled to re enter service sometime this spring....

There are many rumors that the ship man not ever be placed back in service.. It is a "Wait See" situation.

I think the final count was 7 staff were killed if I'm not mistaken. A lot of staff were hurt but no passengers. They did the emergency evacutation I believe. We were on the Norway cruising a week before it happened. We got back May 18th and it happened early in the morning of May 25th while docked in Miami. It was a great ship and a wonderful cruise and if she ever comes back to service, I'm sure we would sail her again.

In the end, there were eight crewman who died and several others who were seriously injured, mostly with burns. One crewman was a steward from Jamaica and all the others were Filipinos, mostly enginemen. The explosion happened at 6:34 AM just after we arrived back in Miami. The staff did an excellent job during the emergency drill so there was no panic among the passengers, even as we watched them take the injured off to the waiting ambulances and medavacs. It might have been a lot worse if we had not been at the dock. They evacuated all the passengers after they had taken care of the injured and extinguished the fire, about 9 AM. Such incidents occur or you can stay home and drive in the traffic. We are still sad when we think about the loss of life but have been on four cruises since then and have four more booked.
