Navigator of the Seas Forced to Dock in Vigo

By ,   October 29, 2018 ,   Accidents

Royal Caribbean's Navigator of the Seas has been forced to dock in the port of Vigo Sunday evening, October 28, as a result of a hole in the hull.

The accident, possibly caused by strong waves on the high seas, has forced the vessel to divert its trajectory and seek refuge in Vigo's wharf for Transatlantic liners at 8:15 p.m.

Despite sailing with about 5,000 people onboard, including passengers and crew, no injuries or serious damage has been reported.

The 311-meter-long mega liner is one of the world's largest and common in the port of Vigo. It had already visited the port this month and has scheduled another stop on November 3.
