Carnival Cruise Lines President and CEO Gerry Cahill led the response to an engine fire that disabled the Carnival Triumph. Recently he announced a $300 million program to enhance fire response, redundancy and emergency power capabilities for hotel services on Carnival ships. The cruise line also said it would reimburse the Coast Guard for its costs in assisting the Triumph and the Carnival Splendor, which had a similar fire three years ago. Cahill last week spoke with Travel Weekly cruise editor Tom Stieghorst.
