The Washington Post reports that Azamara Quest’s crew is being praised for their handling of an electrical fire that crippled the vessel last week. The ship is now docked at Sandakan, Malaysia.
The Post quotes Dorothy Wood of Virginia Beach, Virginia, who praised Finnish captain Leif Karlsson and his crew, adding that “there was such a sense of family with the passengers.”
Diane Becker Krasnick of St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands, said: “It was unfortunate, but the crew was totally, utterly amazing, taking care of us, making sure we were safe, pulling double duty.”
“People didn’t complain,” said Dorothy Irvine, a former school principal from Toronto. ”The captain was phenomenal.”
We’re glad to hear that a potential nightmare was reportedly handled so well. Hopefully, these anomalies at sea are behind us . . .
