    Popular with stag and hen parties. Too early to draw a conclusion, but.........



    Fire on a ship is really really worrying - you can't call the fire brigade, you do it all yourself. Been in one, never want another:Sad:

    Give it a few weeks and that will take over from the gas attacks.

    Incidents like this are few and far apart and very unlikely to happen so why worry.
    You got more chance of falling overboard drunk.

    Plus, the boat was on it's way back from Amsterdam. :party2:

    Two men arrested for starting a 'fire' in the cabin! opp5

    There's no SMOKE without fire! :restmycase:

    They probably didn't even realise the cabin was on fire...........:imoutahere:
