Stricken Cruise Ship Heading for Malaysia

A cruise ship with 1,000 people on board that has been adrift since a fire disabled one of its engines has been repaired.

The Azamara Quest is now heading slowly toward Malaysia and should reach shore on April 1.

The ship has been floating without power in southern Philippine waters after a fire broke out on April 30, a day after it departed Manila at the start of a 17-day Southeast Asian cruise.
