A fire reportedly broke out on the "Costa Luminosa" in the early morning hours on Dec 11, 2014. Around 5 a.m. , while the cruise ship was sailing enroute from Santa Cruz to Antigua in the North Atlantic, the diesel engine number 4 reportedly caught fire. It was confined to the engine room and soon extinguished. There was no indication that any crew members were injured.
On Dec 12, 2014, the "Lord Star", being under repair at the Damen Yard in Brest, suffered an oil leak which caused a pollution of 400 square meters. In order to contain the spread of oil, oil booms were laid out around the dock number 2, where the ship was berthed. The maritime prefecture, the Navy, the police, firefighters and representatives of the Centre for Documentation, Research and Experimentation on Accidental Water Pollution were on site. The bulk carrier had suffered hull damage during a grounding in the Baltic Sea and berthed on Dec 9 for inspections. On Dec 16 divers were to check the condition of the hull.

On Dec 12 the "Stril Myster" was taken in tow by the "Strilborg" with the "BB Ocean" as steering tug in Haugesund. The convoy left port at 9.30 a.m., and the AHTS was delivered at the Rosenberg Yard in Stavanger around 4 p.m.
On Dec 12 the Norwegian Coastguard and Subsea Partner completed emptying of the tanks of the trawler "Krasnoselsk" located on the bottom off Hundeidvik. Altogether, 53 tonnes of marine diesel and 10 tons of lubricating oil was drained. Any remaining residual oil posed no danger to the Environment any longer. Based on information from the owner of the wreck it was assumed that "Krasnoselsk" could have 80 tons of oil on board. But the fuel tanks contained less oil than initially assumed. A patrol of the Coastguard was to inspect the area where the wreck is located from the air during the next few days.
