The 2,200 passengers aboard the Royal Caribbean's Grandeur of the Seas are expected to arrive in Baltimore today, after their planned seven-night cruise was cut short because of a ship fire.
This young passenger says the entire experience was horrifying.
I thought, "We are gonna die." I thought we had to get on the lifeboats and go.
The fire began early Monday and was put out two hours later with no injuries reported. Royal Caribbean says the ship never lost power but photos show a substantial area of the stern burned on several decks of the ship the length of about three football fields.
