RADIANCE OF THE SEAS
Minor oil spill during bunkering
About 100 litres of diesel spilled into Wellington Harbour while the 'Radiance of the Seas' was taking on fuel in the afternoon of Nov 25, 2019. Initially, there were fears of up to 800 litres being spilled. The official estimate was earlier about 400 litres but this was reduced on Nov 26 to fewer than 100 litres. The diesel leaked out of shore-based pipe work and ended up on the docks with a bit leaking into the water at Aotea Quay wharf. Report with photos: http://wellington.scoop.co.nz/?p=124084

Man arrested for trying to throw his wife off cruise ship
A 46-year-old Queensland man has been denied bail after he allegedly tried to throw his partner off the side of a cruise ship and into the Tasman Sea. The couple’s relaxing, five-night cruise to Tasmania nearly ended in tragedy but David James Fysh has insisted he did not try to kill his partner, pleading not guilty to her attempted murder in court on Oct 19. He will now spend the next four months in a Tasmanian jail before his Supreme Court appearance. David James Fysh has been charged with attempted murder while on board the "Radiance of the Seas". The ship bound for Tasmania, departed Sydney and planned to visit two ports before returning. But the couple’s voyage was cut short after just two days when a vicious argument broke out between them about 3.30 a.m. on Oct 18. Police alleged Mr. Fysh approached his partner from behind on a balcony and grabbed her under the arms in an attempt to throw her overboard as the ship was moving. Passengers heard an emergency alarm and screaming in the early hours of the day. Ship security were able to restrain Mr. Fysh and make sure the woman was safe before notifying authorities. Tasmanian police were called to the ship, which docked at Hobart at 8 a.m., and arrested Mr Fysh. The cruise ship company has been co-operating fully with authorities.
