LONDON -- The U.K. Maritime and Coastguard Agency notified Cunard Line that the bathroom panels in some passenger cabins on the Queen Mary 2 failed to pass a fire-safety test.

The agency stressed that the material is in a "low risk wet area" and the ship has a "highly efficient sprinkler system," so "passenger safety is not compromised."

Cunard took steps to remedy the situation by installing additional smoke detectors and sprinklers.

The line also increased the ship's fire patrols.
