Man....France just can't get a break. I doubt this is terrorist related, but I can imagine those on the ship were thinking so. I don't think engine room fires happen that often on cruise lines, so for it to happen on a French cruise liner is just bad luck...

The French luxury expedition ship L’Boreal was evacuated after an engine room fire, but there were no casualties or injuries, according to its operator, Ponant.
The incident took place around 2 a.m. on Nov. 18 as the ship was sailing near the Falkland Islands as part of a cruise to Antarctica. The line said a fire "of a technical nature" broke out in a compartment of the engine room. As a precaution, guests were evacuated to another Ponant ship, L’Austral, which happened to be positioned nearby.
The two ships are similar: each has a capacity of 264 passengers.
Ponant said the balance of the cruise has been canceled and passengers are en route to Port Stanley, the capital of the Falklands, from where they will be “directly repatriated."

Pretty nice looking ship as well:
