BALTIMORE — Royal Caribbean says a cruise ship damaged by fire during a trip from Baltimore to the Bahamas is expected to be back in service by mid-July.

Company spokeswoman Cynthia Martinez said in an email Thursday that the Grandeur of the Seas is expected to be back in service for a July 12 sailing.

No one was injured in Monday’s fire, but passengers on board were sent home and promised full refunds and credit for a future cruise. A cruise set to start Friday was immediately canceled and travelers were given a refund and a 50 percent cruise credit.

The company canceled another five cruises, mostly in June. The company says travelers will receive a refund and a 25 percent credit.

No cause of the fire has been released.
