SS Morro Castle Fire Monument

On the Asbury Park boardwalk located at 1300 Ocean Ave, Asbury Park, New Jersey, visitors will find the SS Morro Castle Monument. The monument is located less than an hour from Cape Liberty Cruise Port at Bayonne, New Jersey cruise ship terminal and the Manhattan Cruise Ship Terminal across the Hudson, River in New York.

Anthem of the Seas calls Cape Liberty her home port. Christened on April 20, 2015, the massive cruise ship has a capacity of 4,905 passengers. Those passengers leaving and returning from a Caribbean cruise, sail right past the monument for the SS Morro Castle fire as they pass Asbury Park, New Jersey.

The SS Morro Castle Fire on September 8, 1934 resulted in the deaths of 135 Passengers and Crew. The cruise ship, huge for her time, had 480 passengers and 240 crew aboard, when the cruise ship caught fire.

At around 2:50 a.m. on September 8, while the SS Morro Castle was sailing around eight nautical miles off Long Beach Island, New York, a fire was detected in a storage locker within the First Class Writing Room on B Deck, which quickly spread within minutes.

Captain Warms attempted to beach the ship, but the growing need to launch lifeboats and abandon ship forced him to give up this strategy. Within 20 minutes of the fire’s discovery (at approximately 3:10), the fire burned through the ship’s main electrical cables, plunging the ship into darkness. As all power was lost, the radio stopped working as well. The crew only got off one SOS call before the radio was silent. Read more on Cruise Ship Fires

MV Lyubov Orlova Drifting Ghost Ship or Sunk?

Lyubov Orlova sailed into St. John’s, Newfoundland in Canada, was inspected and prevented from sailing with passengers for a booked cruise due to too many issues not passing inspection. Meanwhile, the crew was aboard while the ship was held in port and they were not being paid.

The situation with the Lyubov Orlova went on for two years while the Live Cruise Ship Tracker documented her anchored and not moving in Newfoundland, which we blogged several times. The ship was ultimately sold to Neptune International Shipping.

While being towed out of Canada, the line broke, and the rat infested ghost ship drifted in the northern Atlantic Ocean.

On my Youtube channel, you can see the pink diamond icon on October 11, 2010,  showing her still docked in Canada after she had been seized,  in my main page Youtube Video, as I flip through the pages of the web site in the making of the Cruise Bruise promo video and the full page of the Live Cruise Ship Tracker is shown among the other category pages, which were on Cruise Bruise at the time, before each category was given it’s own web site.
