Carnival Cruise Line said an engine room fire on the Carnival Liberty was extinguished without any injuries.

The fire occurred Sept. 7 while the ship was docked in St. Thomas. It was extinguished by the ship’s automated suppression system and there were no injuries to guests or crew, Carnival said in a statement.

Passengers were evacuated on Monday morning, and they were allowed to reboard the ship on Monday evening. All services continue to function, Carnival said.

The ship is being inspected by a technical team and is expected to depart St. Thomas later today. The Liberty was originally scheduled to leave St. Thomas on Monday evening.

Passengers are able to spend the day ashore if they wish and use complimentary shuttles to popular areas on the island. They also received a $150-per-person shipboard credit.
