Azamara Club Cruises reports that an engine room fire was “quickly extinguished” on the Azamara Quest the evening of March 30 as it sailed in Asia. The fire was contained to the engine room. No injuries to guests were reported.
In a statement, the company said the captain initially mustered guests to lifeboat stations “in an abundance of caution.” Afterward, the mood was “calm.” The ship is currently running on generator power until full power can be restored to the engine room. The statement did not detail when or where the ship would be repaired.
Azamara Quest is currently located 200 miles off the coast of Balikpapan (Borneo), Indonesia, in calm seas. It is on a 17-night sailing that departed Hong Kong on March 26 and includes calls at Manila, Philippines; Sandakan (Sabah), Malaysia; Palapo (Sulawesi), Benoa (Bali), Semarang and Komodo, Indonesia and concludes in Singapore on April 12.
