    Propulsion has been restored to a luxury cruise ship carrying about 1,000 people after an engine fire broke out Friday night, leaving it adrift off the coast of Indonesia. The ship Azamara Quest is limping to Sandakan, Malaysia, at a speed of between three and six knots, which will take it between 24 and 48 hours to get to port. All of the passengers are safe, but five crew members suffered smoke inhalation during the fire. The rest of the cruise has been canceled.
