In need hit cruise ship arrived in the harbor of the Norwegian city of Molde

The problems affected cruise ship, the Viking Sky’s Sunday afternoon with the help of tugboats arrived in the port of the Norwegian Molde.

At the time that the ship to shore came, were approximately 870 people on board the ship. The other five hundred people on board were evacuated with helicopters.

Earlier on Sunday, the evacuation of the cruise ship shut down, because the situation for passengers on board at that time was safe. The crew of the ship knew three of the four engines to restart, so the ship could sail. Tugs helped the ship the last 80 kilometres in the direction of the port of Molde.

The authorities began Saturday the people of the ship to pick up and went there at night. The Viking Sky suffered during stormy weather with engine problems.

Seventeen people are due to their injuries transferred to hospitals.
