Around 30 tour coaches were booked in order to take travellers to Cornwall's attractions. They all were cancelled as the vessel headed to Cherbourg, France instead.

In March, passengers on another Viking ship, Viking Sky, had to be evacuated due to engine failure in stormy seas off the coast of Norway.
