My father is a heart and cancer patient, so we had to get his medications from his room.

They stopped the boat and turned it around because of the wind direction, which was making the fire very hard to fight. They shut off all the air conditioning. Our muster station was in the computer lab. It got very hot. There were people lying on the floor.

I woke up around 3:15 a.m. to this loud clanging and banging. I got out of bed and opened the cabin door, and there was a man in the hall saying there was a fire two floors above us and we had to get the other passengers up and get out. I went back into the room, opened the curtains, and I could see flames and cinders and things falling on our balcony.
