They have restored one engine so they now have air conditioning, galley, elevators and plumbing so the passengers are now more comfortable. However, they are still without propulsion and five crew members suffered smoke inhalation during the fire and one crew member is seriously injured. That crew member will be evacuated to a mainland hospital.

This is very similar to the Carnival Splendor problem and like the Splendor the Quest will probably have to be towed in. At least there are plenty of shipyards in South East Asia that can repair the vessel and at least get her moving but the Quest will definitely miss some sailings.

Take care,
Mike
