- propulsion/power loss - 2013 (class-action lawsuit)
|04 September 2013||Propulsion / Power Loss|
October 4, 2013, the Viking longship Magni suffered power / propulsion issues during a 14-day Rhine River cruise (itinerary September 24 - October 8). The incident resulted in reduced speed en-route to the next call port. As the crew didn't manage to fix the problem, the voyage was cancelled. All the 200 passengers disembarked the boat and continued on the itinerary route via buses. However, the land tour itinerary was not the same, skipping most of the scheduled cities. As compensation, all passengers received 50% future Viking river cruise booking discount.
(law news) On November 30, 2013, an US couple filed USD 5 million class-action lawsuit against the shipowner Viking Cruises. The claim was that the company knew about the vessel's electrical problems before its breakdown on Oct 4.
