Azamara cruise passenger: 'We're in good spirits'

A cruise ship disabled by a fire has been repaired and is sailing slowly from Philippines waters to Malaysia, the ship's operator says.

Fire broke out on the Azamara Quest on Friday, a day after it left Manila for Malaysia, with 1,001 people on board.

None of the passengers were injured, according to the ship's operator, Azamara Club Cruises.

British couple Deborah and Tim Garnett from Yorkshire remain on the boat and described their ordeal.

They said it had been worrying but that passengers were in good spirits.
