The P&O Oriana has returned back to Port after a fire broke out in the ship engine room.

The small fire broke out yesterday evening (April 18th) at around 7 PM not long after the 65,153 gross ton cruise ship departed Miami, Florida. From what we can tell the damage was minor as the P&O Oriana has now departed Miami once again. No injuries have been reported.

The news first broke via @PTZtv and they mentioned that a viewer of one of the web cams heard radio messages between the cruise ship and the US Coast Guard.

When Oriana came back into PortMiami it was helped by tugs as seen on the @PTZtv web cam. Cruise Hive has requested further details from the cruise line and will update this post once we get a response. The cruise ship is sailing a 32 night Caribbean and US cruise which started from Southampton, UK on April 4th. P&O Oriana was heading towards Key West, Florida when the fire broke out.
