An early morning engine room fire in one of Splendour of the Seas’ two engine rooms sent some passengers to their muster stations. Royal Caribbean said the ship’s fire suppression system was activated and extinguished the blaze, and the other engine room was unaffected.
Contrary to some reports, Royal Caribbean said the ship never lost power and never was adrift. Hotel functions continue to operate more or less normally.
