“There are no safety concerns” for a ship adrift without power is an interesting one.

PR Dept in overdrive.......a bit like condensation in the controls??..Not sure I`ve heard that one before. Still they`ll have plenty of hair dryers on board for the engineers to use 🤣

I suspect they must have decided that “your lives are not in immediate danger and beyond that there are no safety concerns that would be of any use for you to know about” might not have the same calming effect on morale.

True, it would `nt do to tell them that they have doubled the lookouts in case they meet the VLCC inbound to Rotterdam, registered in the Marshall Island, with an uncertified watch keeper from God Knows Where, whom they hope is not actually asleep on the overwarm bridge 😂..not for nothing do they call the 12-4 the graveyard watch!!

Passengers have the option of staying on board, hopefully departing on Wednesday, arriving in Southampton on Tuesday (17th December) or they can request a flight which needs to be done by 8pm tonight.
