Azamara Quest cruise ship docks in Borneo following fire

Azamara Quest – the cruise ship stricken at sea for 24-hours following an onboard fire – has docked in Malaysia following repairs.

A fire broke out on the vessel on Friday leaving five crew members needing treatment for smoke inhalation.

Some 1,001 people are believed to have been on board at the time, largely tourists from Europe and the United States.

The ship is now docked at the port of Sandaken, Borneo.

Passengers have disembarked and been taken to hotels. Most are expected to fly home following the cancellation of the voyage.

The ship is owned by Royal Caribbean, the second largest cruise operator in the world behind Carnival Corporation.
