A reader of Cruise Law News said that there was a small fire reportedly on Jewel of the Seas.
Royal Caribbean did not make an announcement about the fire. There was no air conditioning for five hours.
One person left a comment on my Facebook page:
". . . .The fire was dealt with quickly, took about 9 hours to get all the resulting issues fixed and they arrived in San Juan on time. There was a power outage on the day they left San Juan that lasted about 10 minutes. Said the fire was a result of a blown breaker. Another post from someone on the ship said 30 minutes after leaving Barbados a major breaker blew causing a fire in one of the stacks. The fire was quickly put out, but they had no air conditioning for 5 hours and no toilets for at least two. It was 3am before they started moving again. None of the announcements on board mentioned the fire, that there were enough passengers that witnessed it, and knew about it. They missed both the Thursday and Friday shows because of (the) issue."
