another cruise ship aground in Norway

Jump to last reply

last night (March 10) the CMV cruise ship Marco Polo ran aground in Norway departing from its Norway call port Sortland as part of its Norwegian Fjord cruise itinerary. The ship struck an underwater rock (no injured passengers or crew), then returned to the Sortland port for damage assessment and after some hull repairs was cleared to continue with its cruise. The Norwegian Coastal Administration is responsible for the Norway charts and they'll investigate the incident.
