Passengers and crew members who had not already been evacuated from the Viking Sky cruise ship disembarked safely as it docked in Molde on Sunday, following a large-scale rescue operation after the ship suffered engine failure during a storm.
Around 500 of the roughly 1,300 people on board were reportedly airlifted by helicopter from the vessel off the western Norwegian coast on Saturday.
The... Еще ship had sent a distress signal due to «engine problems in bad weather,» prompting Norway's sea rescue agency to start rescue operations.
Five helicopters and a number of ships took part in the operation.
Three of the ship's four engines were re-started, allowing it to reach the port of Molde accompanied by a number of tug vessels.
The MV Viking Sky was originally heading from the northern port of Tromso to the coastal southern city of Stavanger.
Some 20 passengers have been taken to hospital with injuries.
