Who is starting Epic fires?

Home/Cruise news, New ships/Who is starting Epic fires?

Big shock when I read this headline on Cruise Critic. Has the billionaire boss of Carnival Cruise Corporation become so worried about the impending launch of Norwegian Epic that he has resorted to dirty tricks?
Yet another fire – the third in a few weeks – has been reported on board the new ship in the STX Europe yard at Nantes, in France.
Then I realised I was suffering from a temporary bout of dyslexia, and it was not Micky Arison under suspicion, but arson.
The latest blaze is said to have broken out in air conditioning plant while yard workers and their families were being shown round the ship, which is due to be handed over to NCL on June 15, and which will arrive in Southampton on June 22.
French police are investigating the earlier incidents, and say that Sunday’s fire was almost certainly deliberate.
