I'm far away from the sea to Hamburg I have a longer distance as to Venice or Genova.
My favorite is the Suezchannel, Panamacannal  and since 2006 also Chinese harbours. I've a lot of pictures and I don't show them because here at shipspotting.com is a copyright problem

Is it my imagination or does MSC have more than its share of serious incidents at sea, etc.?

Magoman

Yes and No
The vessel belongs to NSB a german company. However it seems that the fire broke out in
a hold. Most probably then through cargo inside a container. Wrong stowed or IMO cargo which not supposed to be stowed in a hold etcetc
The stowage of the cargo inside container is not done by NSB or MSC but by the shipper,which can be a company in the middle of nowhere 100,s or more km away from any port.
In general the containers are not opened and checked when loaded, also when there is a regulation that a Master of a ship has to control that the cargo !!!inside!!! a container is properly stowed.  Imagine that on a 10000 TEU container vessels and the Mastet lets open the containers for inspection.  Virtually impossible. Capt,s are in that matter and with it the ships/linr services at the mercy of the company who stow the container.  At present it is even not assured/done that every container is weighted before loading !!!! The weight is given by the shippers and taken as such, So imagine then to check the stow !!!
But in general, MSC/the ships owners are in this matter totally depended on the infos the shippers give them.  Same think on the Reina,, the Capt takes a short cut,, is that MSC fault ?   Somehow I think as Capt by myself, not.
But you are right when you say,,they have more incidents then others

Latest 16.07 update from TRADEWIND

»The 16,500-hp ocean going tug Anglian Sovereign (built 2003) is currently being loaded with specialist firefighting gear at Inverness including a Cobra lance system that can pierce container walls and extinguish fires within boxes. But it will be Thursday or Friday before this tug reaches the last reported position of the MSC Flaminia«
