Looking at the back of the ship, we can see that this specific ship is the Carnival Freedom, an older ship in the lineup of Carnival Cruise Ships. At this time we are unsure how the fire started or if the situation was resolved. We also do not know if any injuries were reported. We will update the story as more information comes out.

More information on the Carnival Freedom:


Carnival Freedom has a message for you, and its “feel free to have fun!” Explore the ship and you’ll find food options galore, starting with two dining rooms, but definitely extending outdoors — there’s mouth-watering Guy Fieri burgers at Guy’s Burger Joint, plus the greatest tacos and burritos this side of the pier at BlueIguana Cantina. For delicious, but quick and easy, selections from the sea, get your chopsticks around all the good stuff at Bonsai Sushi Express.

For every great food spot, there’s a great place to enjoy drinks, too, from the toe-tapping Scott’s Piano Bar to the always-hoppin’ 70’s Nightclub. For the thirsty, libation hotspots include Alchemy Bar® and the 50-yard-line of fun itself, SkyBox Sports Bar. Everybody’s favorite outdoor seaside bar is here… whether yours is the RedFrog Rum Bar® or BlueIguana Tequila Bar. (Or hey, make it both!) The rum bar’s older brother, RedFrog Pub®, features drinks, live music and traditional pub games. Topping off adult-time is Serenity — adult-only, of course — the retreat where total relaxation is not only encouraged, but pretty much required.

What do you think about this intense situation?
