  14 December 2003Propulsion / Power Loss

On December 14, 2003, the ship was on a southbound course and navigating between Alesund and Maloy, when the main power supply failed and all engine power was lost. The vessel was approaching a reef. The released anchors tried to stop the drift but failed.

All passengers (102 at the time) were ordered to the lifeboats. Luckily, one of the anchors caught and the main engines were restarted. The cause for the accident was an overgrown inlet to engines' coolant systems.
