Arctic Cruise Ship in Trouble off Greenland

Cruise passengers onboard Sea Adventurer have had to fly home before reaching their final destination due to engine troubles.

The ship, run by Arctic Adventures, set sail on its week-long journey on July 23 and was scheduled to arrive in Canada on July 30.

However, due to a malfunction in the vessel’s secondary engine the trip was cut short off the west coast of Greenland in Ilulissat on Saturday.

“The captain has made the call to put the ship into the shipyard for repair in Nuuk, Greenland, in order for the ship to operate and run efficiently and safely for the duration of its Canadian Arctic season,” explained Alana Faber of Adventure Canada.

The cruise ship should be in operation after two weeks of repairs, in the meantime another vessel is expected to step in for the booked voyages.
