The Marco Polo cruise ship is back in the news after it ran aground while trying to dock at a pier in Norway. It previously ran aground in March 2013 in Norway. News accounts estimate that somewhere between 750 and 1,000 passengers were aboard.
The AP says that maritime rescue services are hoping to pull the cruise ship free at high tide later today, after tugboats and a coast guard vessel failed to push it free.
The ship is chartered by U.K. based Cruise & Maritime Voyages.
Marco Polo was last in the news in February of this year when it proceeded to sail in extremely rough weather. A wave crashed through a window in the vessel’s dining room and killed a passenger.
