Oct 31 & Nov 7, 2010 Carnival Cruise Line Carnival Splendor Fires

Sharron Bacon and her husband Arthur from Atlanta, Georgia say they were aboard Carnival Splendor from October 31, 2010 thru November 7, 2010, suffering through a fire aboard the ship for the entire week of their cruise.

Mrs. Bacon says that she reported the smell of the fire's smoke to the crew repeatedly and they even came to her cabin at one point to tape up the cracks to keep the smell of the smoldering fire from entering her cabin.

Mrs. Bacon says it wasn't the smell of cigarette smoke, instead the smell of something smoldering.

The couple say that they stayed in cabin 2395. Let's take a look at where that cabin is located on the ship.

Cabin 2395 is midship on Deck Two, more towards the stern, a dozen cabins further rear than the aft elevators. It's an outside cabin, with no apparent direct channel to the engine room that would put it closer to the smoldering fire in the engine room than any other cabin in the aft section of the ship on Deck 2.

Looking at those facts we can deduct other facts. First, we know the staff were aware of the problem to the point they visited the room. Because cabin 2395 occupants smelled the fire, other aft cabins on Deck Two should have smelled it too. This also means that cabin stewards working Deck Two had to smell the stench as well. Yet, nothing was done.
