    Good job guys!

    Wish I knew more details. It would seem to make more sense to send a couple commercial ugs to tow it to port than to individually evacuate 1300 people by helicopter in a storm. What am I missing? The ship doesn't appear to be listing or taking on water.

    ​Cruise ship passengers evacuated from the Viking Sky off coast of Norway reported by @Haily Watts at action news she had interviewed passengers who got off the Viking Sky cruise ship about 50 mins

    It will take a couple days to lift them all off by just using five helicopters. There were 1,300 passengers.

    Not seeing that many life boats on this ship. Must be smaller than it looks.

    Relax! All the Scandinavian countries will take care of all of the passengers!

    Many obviously never did a cruise in heavy waters. Ship doesn't sink like the freight ship. Throwing these "safety nutshells" into these waves is murder and the last option when a ship sinks.

    Congrats to those involved in the evacuation and rescue operation. To those on the internet wanting to jump in the lifeboats.. one comment. I would have done the same if the only other option was to swim back to the "beach".

  • Reply Ana Buluc March 24, 2019 at 8:03 pm

    Only one reason for all engines failures.Dirt inside the fuel or oil engines systems.In my life I had a lot of that situation as a testing engineer of ships.I can manage the corrective action if somebody think is necessary.

  • Reply Alexander Michael March 24, 2019 at 8:14 pm

    Would I ever go on a ship? No,I cannot trust the build or the crew,they would most likely leave if the boat got in trouble,first off,like all those who are not English on board.

    captain forgets to take seagull outboard engine for such emergencies LOL.

  • Reply slitor March 25, 2019 at 8:09 am

    It got rather absurd, there was a lumber freighter which was moving in to assist which also got engine problems and had to be evacuvated to…it was only 9 people though so they all made it off safely.

    Also they got the engine going again on the viking and its safe in port now, they managed to get over 300 souls of by helicopter.

    At the time of the Mayday distress call, average wind of 26 m/s (storm) and gusts up to 39 m/s (well above hurricane) were recorded at nearby weather station on the island of Ona a few km away ( ). Captain trusted the local onboard pilots when entering these treacherous waters at Hustadvika. The shutdown of the engines happened at the exact "right time". Some minutes later/earlier would most likely have proven disastrous for the ship.

    They chose the ship because they were afraid of flying. Face your fears bitches!
