Stranded Luxury Cruise with 206 Passengers Rescued After Days
Recently, Ocean Explorer, a luxury cruise with 206 passengers on board, was stranded in a deserted place in the Arctic.
The cruise started on September 1st and was supposed to return on September 22nd, but on September 11th, the cruise got stranded around 1368 km from Greenland’s capital city.
Passengers from Australia, South Korea, New Zealand, Britain and the United States paid a whooping amount of $33000 for the luxurious cruise.
Three attempts were made to rescue the ship, but all failed. The Joint Arctic Command from the Danish Military said the weather has not been favourable, so the help will take time. There was no immediate danger to the life onboard the cruise or the vessel.
The only problem was that a few passengers onboard the cruise tested COVID-19 positive, but those passengers have been kept in isolation, and the rest are fine.
After a few attempts, the ship has been rescued, and all the passengers are safe.
