If the energetic folks of British Columbia have their way, what people call the Alaska cruise may soon become the Canada and Alaska cruise.

P&O Sitmar Cruises, owners of the Fairstar, said a 44-year-old boiler attendant died after suffering burns to 75% of his body during what was to be a routine testing of an auxiliary boiler.

A recent Alaskan trip on Sitmar Cruises' Fairsea turned out to be a wonderful surprise. There were six of us, so I admit we looked for a bargain. After seeing an advertisement in the Travel Section we decided to book with Sitmar, even though we thought the cruise might be crowded and noisy with lots of children. Not so! There was a marvelous pizza parlor and the staff and crew were competent and friendly (except for our waiter, who didn't understand English). One of the most outstanding features on the ship was its Youth Center.
