Corrosion Likely Cause of Pacific Sky’s Problems

Monday, March 17, 2003
P&O Cruises’ Pacific Sky is undergoing repairs to its ducting system and will be ready to depart for its next cruise on March 23. According to reports, severe corrosion was to blame for a leak which forced the cruise ship back to Auckland with 1470 passengers and 600 crew. The vessel is now berthed at the Devonport Naval Base where it is undergoing repairs. Spokesman Russell Kilvington says their officials are now looking at the rest of the ship to determine whether this is an isolated problem or if there are other areas which will require repair. The MSA says Pacific Sky will not return to its cruise schedule until repairs are carried out to the agency's satisfaction.
