A luxury cruise ship stranded at sea for 24 hours because of a fire has safely reached a Malaysian port. The Azamara Quest was adrift off the southern Philippines for 24 hours with 1,000 people aboard after flames engulfed one of its engine rooms Friday night. It restored propulsion last night and reached the harbor of Sandakan city in Malaysia's eastern state of Sabah on Borneo island today.
The ship is owned by Royal Caribbean, notes the BBC, and the rest of its voyage has been canceled. Five crew members suffered smoke inhalation, including one who was seriously injured. Cruise ships haven't been having a very good run of late. (Read more cruise ships stories.)
