A 'small fire' confined to a crew area aboard Icon of the Seas was quickly put out while the ship, pictured here in a file photo, was alongside at Costa Maya
A 'small fire' aboard Icon of the Seas caused a brief power loss while the ship was docked at Costa Maya, Mexico Tuesday afternoon.

The fire was isolated to a crew area and quickly extinguished by the onboard team, with no injuries reported, a Royal Caribbean spokesperson told Seatrade Cruise News.

Power quickly restored

Icon of the Seas' backup generator kicked in and power was quickly restored, according to the spokesperson.

As a precaution, the gangways were temporarily closed. Passenger impact may have been limited because many people were likely ashore.

Ship will sail as planned

There were no immediate specifics on any damage, but Icon of the Seas will sail as planned, the spokesperson said.

The world's largest cruise ship is on a seven-day roundtrip from PortMiami that departed June 22. A call at Cozumel is scheduled Wednesday.
