I am no legal expert in SOLAS, but to get around it, why not have the passengers sign a release of responsibility if there were a fire?

I also have a hypothesis about the MQ. I think Majestic America Line is waiting on the outcome of the DQ. If DQ wins, MQ gets mothballed. If DQ loses, MQ gets rebuilt. It almost seems like that is the reason why they are talking about reducing the #of MQ rooms, if they rebuild it.

Also, if the MQ is supposed to be back in March of '08, would not rip out and demo have to start soon? I am a construction mgr and a nine month schedule on a job of this nature seems somewhat tight, given the complexities of the MQ and the problemss that need to be resolved.
