Cruise Critic reports that the Majesty of the Seas, built in 1992, is in dry dock in Freeport because the cruise ship is leaking oil.
The Majesty is the oldest in Royal Caribbean’s fleet of cruise ships. The cruise line is sending the ship to Pullmantur next year.
Royal Caribbean canceled the cruise for this week (a four-night Bahamas cruise). The cruise line says that it will issue refunds and future cruise certificates.
Royal Caribbean tried to minimize the PR fallout by claiming that there was no damage to the environment. The PR person at the cruise line, Cynthia Martinez, says repairs will "resolve an issue that is causing a small amount of bio-friendly oil to leak."
I am used to the typical gobbledygook PR statements from Royal Caribbean, but this one took the cake.
Anyone know of petroleum based products that are good for the water, fish and aquatic bids?
