Drilling started, Andarco complains to police about protesters within safety zone
The "Noble Bob Douglans" started the deep sea oil exploration on Nov 26 at 2.30 a.m. Hours later, Greenpeace filed papers at the High Court asking for a judicial review of the decision to allow Anadarko to carry out deep sea drilling and pulled its protest ship from the drilling site. Greenpeace's executive director Bunny McDiarmid has spent more than a week on the s/v "Vega" circling the exploration ship in a bid to stop it from drilling. In the morning it remained inside a 500-metre safety exclusion zone around the ship despite the "Noble Bob Douglas" starting the drilling process but would be heading home now to work on the High Court challenge. Anadarko New Zealand have made a complaint to the police about the presence of the "Vega" within the safety zone. Report with photo: tvnz.co.nz/nation...

 Carnival Magic  (Passenger Ship > Cruise Ship)

Carnival Cruise denied water shut off for 24 hours
Carnival Cruise Lines denied that water was shut off for 24 hours on the "Carnival Magic" as stated by one passenger, in fact it was shut off only about two hours for some repairs, after the ship docked in Galveston on Nov 24, 2013, at 1 p.m. Almost all passengers had exited the vessel at the end of their cruise at the time of the repairs. In the Strand area of Galveston near the cruise terminal, a group of passengers vocally upset about toilet problems on their just-ended cruise that somebody who wasn't even on the ship decided to alert the media after overhearing them. But cruise line officials said any passenger claims that the "Carnival Magic" was without working toilets for a 24-hour period were overblown. In fact, the embarkation for the next cruise began just after 11 a.m., which was earlier than expected, and water service was restored by then. Around midnight the ship left the port bound for Balboa.

Man crushed by elevator
On Nov 25, 2013, one person died in an elevator accident aboard the "Patria Seaways", which was sailing between Kapellskär and Paldiski. The crew member was clamped on the roof of an elevator used by both staff and passenger while the ferry was entering Kapellskärs port at 11.25 a.m. Because the ferry was about to dock it took some time before he got help. The man had, by yet unclear reasons, made his way up through a hatch in the roof of the elevator. When the elevator started again the man was crushed. An inquiry was launched by the Norrtäljegatan Police.
