Trevor Potts, who runs the Ardnamurchan Campsite through the summer and is currently working on the cruise ship L'Austral in Antarctica, has had an exciting 24 hours. Yesterday he reported on Facebook, "Our sister ship, Le Boreal, had an engine room fire and they abandoned ship at first light. We arrived to take about 250 people onboard. We are now heading for Stanley. No casualties. Fire is out on Le Boreal. I am on L'Austral with all the rescued people."
The Royal Navy patrol ship HMS Clyde was also close by and able to reach the cruise ship to assist in the rescue. There's video footage from her helicopter, and more information here.
