Small Electrical Fire Displaces Passengers on Cruise Ship
(5:00 p.m. EDT) -- A small electrical fire broke out in passenger cabin on Crown Princess Saturday evening, the line has confirmed.

"There were no injuries and we're currently investigating the cause," Princess said in a statement sent to Cruise Critic. The ship, carrying 2,948 passengers on a 12-day Eastern Mediterranean cruise, is sailing on schedule. The voyage ends in Rome on July 23.

Cruise Critic member MSH from Norway, who was onboard, posted that the fire occurred on the Emerald Deck (Deck 8) and that several cabins filled with smoke. Some cabins were also waterlogged MSH from Norway wrote.

While Princess did not comment on the damage to the ship, the line did tell Cruise Critic that the passengers in the affected cabin, as well as those in the cabin next to it, were moved -- both cabins were left without electricity.

Ship brokerage Web site, Ships For Sale, which also has a blog, first reported the story.
