    Default Cruise ship in trouble off Norway

    This looks really scary! Fingers and toes crossed, those poor passengers must be petrified.

    A Viking Ocean Cruises cruise ship with about 1,300 people on board is in distress in heavy weather just off the coast of western Norway. Search and rescue teams have begun evacuating passengers by helicopter. As of now the ship is holding anchor with one engine running approximately 2 km from shore.

    Yes. It looks very unpleasant and we will have to hope that it turns out all right for them.

    How long will it take to get 1500 people off by helicopter?

    AIS shows it moving slowly with a tug shadowing it.

    Looks hopeful at the moment, brown trousers or what this afternoon though!

    Two of the rescue helicopters have been diverted to help a cargo ship in trouble. It's going to be a long night up there.

    Thanks Richard. We are receiving sporadic updates from them. So far all as well as can be expected.
