More than 2000 cruise passengers on a Royal Caribbean Cruise ship had a nightmare on the high seas on Monday.

The Grandeur of the Seas, which departed from Baltimore on Friday, was diverted to Freeport, Bahamas after it was unable to safely make it to the original destination of CocoCay.

The fire that began at 2:50 a.m. Monday was extinguished about two hours later with no injuries reported. A cause wasn't immediately known.

Passengers were relieved that the disaster did not turn more serious, as they were warned to put on life jackets after the fire started on the aft mooring deck and then spread to the fourth deck. Fortunately, there were no reports of serious injuries or medical emergencies related to the incident. The power and communication systems were unaffected by the blaze.
