Minor Engine Fire Cancels Bahamas Cruise

A small engine room fire aboard Bahamas Celebration canceled today's sailing from Palm Beach to the Bahamas.

The fire resulted from an oil leak in one of the ship's six generators, and according to the line, it was quickly extinguished by the ship's systems. Neither the ship nor the passengers were in danger, the line said. The ship never lost power during the incident, however the fire has affected the vessel's air conditioning.

Today's sailing was canceled, and Thursday's may also face cancellation while the air conditioning is fully repaired.
