Yesterday a fire broke out onboard Carnival Liberty which is operated by Carnival Cruise Line. At the time the ship was docked in St Thomas, U.S Virgin Islands.
Most importantly there were no injuries to any guests or crew from the fire which broke out in the ship’s engine room. The automated suppression system did extinguish the fire before it could spread further. Passengers were forced to wait in a local hotel’s reception in St Thomas for safety. They were given refreshments and well looked after by the cruise line.
While docked in St. Thomas today Carnival Liberty experienced an engine fire that was extinguished by the ship’s automated suppression system. There were no injuries to guests or crew. All guests remained ashore through this evening while the ship’s technical systems were evaluated. Presently, all hotel services including air conditioning, elevators, toilets, galleys, etc. are fully functional.
