Passengers of a cruise ship Viking Sky, which crashed off the coast of Norway, spoke about his salvation in broadcast TV When Cruises Go Horribly Wrong & Other Travel Nightmares (“When cruise ships are in distress, and other nightmares travelers”). Reported by the Daily Mail.
According to Esther brown and her husband Eric brown, who paid more than four thousand pounds per trip, when the ship broke down, they were terrified. “I realized that it was something serious, when he heard the captain sends distress signal mayday. We had never before seen such a stormy sea, and we became anxious at the sight of these giant waves,” shared brown.
His wife Esther added that later the lights went out and all the sounds disappeared, whereupon she asked her husband why they can’t hear the engines. “The conditions became worse, and then it turned out that all four engines of the huge airliner stopped, which meant the lack of power. It’s called “dead ship”,” explained brown.
“I just couldn’t believe what was happening. I was terrified. At the time my right leg was very badly damaged and she began to swell. I’m a Walker, so I wasn’t sure that I could crawl,” shared another passenger Fiona Dawes, who traveled with my cousin Denise manning and seriously injured his leg when the water broke the glass doors of the ship. “I just thought I’ll never see my grandson,” added her sister Denise manning with tears in her eyes.
However, the crew of the cruise liner managed to restart the engine and avoid a shipwreck.
Cruise liner Viking Sky lost in the course off the coast of Norway on March 23. On Board were 1300 passengers. People aboard the Viking Sky were taken to three evacuation helicopters and two lifeboats with passengers because of the wind and waves had to turn around.
