Cruise ships are full of potential fire hazards

Cruise ships are large passenger ships used mainly for vacationing. They typically embark on round-trip voyages to various ports-of-call, where passengers may go on tours known as "shore excursions." On "cruises to nowhere" or "nowhere voyages", cruise ships make two- to three-night round trips without visiting any ports of call. They have normal multipurpose facilities and offer extra services such as restaurants, bars, conference rooms, business centers, health clubs, and laundries. In addition, cruise ships have large machinery spaces where a fire will have large consequences for the vessel's safety maneuverability. Most ship fires originate in the machinery space due to broken fuel pipes. Also the galley and galley exhaust ducts are potential causes of fire together with electrical failure or malfunction, and careless smoking in rooms. Cruise ships are occupied by guests who most likely are unfamiliar with the ship and its escape routes and exits, which makes exiting during a fire extra challenging.

A fire on a cruise ship can have large consequences for the crew and passengers.
