Small fire due to short circuit
A small fire broke out on the 'Disney Wonder' in the night of Nov 23, 2022, due to an electrical short circuit in the speaker system. The fire was on a speaker high up behind the giant Funnel Vision screen. Initially, smoke was rising, then progressively larger flames were visible. The fire was not directly near guests, but the screen and speaker are mounted on the funnel that houses Vibe, the teen club. Firefighters reported to the scene and put out the fire. They closed off the decks around the fire but all areas were back open within a few hours. Report with photos: https://wdwnt.com/2022/11/speaker-on-fire-aboard-disney-wonder-cruise-ship/
