Blaze Breaks Out Aboard Bahamas Cruise Ship

A Royal Caribbean cruise has been cancelled after fire broke out on the ship's stern, burning through several decks on the vessel.

The company says more than 2,200 passengers will be flown from the Bahamas back to the US.

The cancellation is latest trouble for Carnival Corp, whose Triumph ship was disabled by fire in February, leaving thousands of passengers stuck for days in the Gulf of Mexico.

Nobody was injured in Monday's fire and the cause remains unknown.
