I’m currently on this boat and we were told it was not a fire but a steam leak.

The 2 victims came from Indonesia and the Philippines. As for the name, we’ll keep it a secret

This info is completely inaccurate. No fire. The name of the ship is Nieuw Amsterdam, not New Amsterdam. Geesh. You guys suck.
