Around 100 passengers were evacuated via lifeboats, the rest passengers and crew were offloaded via improvised gangways to the pier. All were accommodated to local hotels.

On September 16, the emergency teams had to pump water out from the ship to prevent capsizing, as it started tilting critically at nearly 22 degrees. Using additional pumps, by the evening the ship slowly righted itself to 16 degrees list.
