A tourist vessel passes by the luxury liner Westerdam while docked at Piraeus port near Athens May 3, 2004.

All aboard the MS Westerdam cruise ship made it back to port in Seattle safely following a small boiler-room fire Saturday, according to the Holland America unit of the Carnival Corp. (NYSE:CCL).

The 82,348-ton Westerdam was beginning a seven-day Alaska cruise Saturday afternoon when the fire started, Holland America said in a statement. On board were 2,086 guests and 798 crew members.

Added the company: “The ship is fully operational and there has been no impact on guest services. It is anticipated that the ship will depart again once the assessments are competed and continue her voyage to Alaska.”
