Bloomberg News reports that Viking Line’s M/S Amorella passenger ferry lost power and ran aground in the Aaland archipelago southwest of Finland.
According to the ferry company’s website, the ship carried 1,945 (with capacity of 2,400) but no one was injured and the passengers will remain on the vessel which will continue its voyage to Mariehamn.
M/S Amorella was en route to Stockholm from Turku, when it hit rocks at Julgrund, outside of Foegloe, at 12:40 p.m. today.
The vessel was built 25 years ago in 1988 in Split, Croatia.
