Three killed in Oceana Cruises’ Insignia fire

A fire broke out in the engine room of Miami-based Oceania Cruises’ Insignia ship on December 11, resulting in the deaths of one crew member and two contractors, Cruise Hive reported.

The cruise ship fire occurred around 9:30 a.m. as crew members and contractors were working on this ship. Two other crew members were brought to the hospital with injuries.

Oceania Cruises president and COO Jason Montague, plus the cruise line’s support and technical personnel, remained in St. Lucia to make sure that guests were taken care of. Every guest was booked a complimentary flight back to Miami, received a full refund, and were granted credit towards a future cruise with the company.

The cruise ship was traveling on a 10-day trip that left San Juan, Puerto Rico on December 7 and was set to dock at a port in Miami on December 17.

The attorneys of the Louis A. Vucci, P.A., hope for the quick recovery of those injured and extend their condolences to the friends and family suffering during this difficult time.
