"the Cruise ship was in distress on the coast of Norway now at a leisurely pace towards the country, and is expected to arrive in the afternoon."
"Saturday night was dramatic, and the ship was very close to go on the grounds."
"the Viking Sky goes for your own machine with a speed of around seven knots, but is followed by tug boats."
"– the Evacuation has been put on pause, and the ship goes against Molde, " says Einar Knutsen at the emergency HRS TT."
"a Total of 479 of the 1 373 persons on board, taken ashore by helicopter, according to news agency NTB. During the whole night flew three helicopters shuttling to get in the country the passengers."
"The almost 900 people who remain on board can feel safe, according to Knutsen. The boat is expected to be in the port around the clock 15."
"– It looks like that we will manage to take the boat to Molde with the rest of the passengers. The municipality has full emergency preparedness for when the boat arrives, says Jan Arve Dyrnes at Fræna municipality, where most of the evacuees have been taken so far, at a press conference."
"According to the american Rodney Horgen that was with on the cruise ship has the last day been scary."
"– The best word to describe it is surreal. We sat in the restaurant when the ship started rolling heavily from side to side. People fell and the table tops slid on the floor, " he says to NRK."
"He describes how the water went from 20 to 30 people and how he thought it was the end. Rodney Horgen was during the Sunday morning evacuated and are now at a hotel in Molde with several other of the rescued."
"On the video clip that spread on Twitter shows how tables and chairs make your way over the floor on the wildly heeling the cruise ship. A total of 20 people have been injured, according to the NTB."
"on Saturday, when it was still storm and none of the Viking Sky's engines worked, the vessel must have been 100 metres from walking on the grounds, said pilots in the Møre and Trøndelag. The crew struggled for more than half an hour to anchor the ship."
" They were very near running aground. It was probably not a fun experience to be on the ship then, " says Emil Heggelund, driftsansvarlig for the pilots, to Bergens Tidene."
"the emergency services would not comment on how close it was that the ship ran aground."
"– the Ship was two miles from land, when the crew managed to get fixed anchors, but the area is known to be full of cuts and because, " says Einar Knutsen to the TT."
"A cargo ship with nine men in the crew who was on site to assist in the rescue effort got during the evening, stalling and heel. In order to be able to be evacuated, invited the crew to jump into the sea to be picked up by the rescue helicopter. All were rescued from the water."
"Several of the smaller rescue was forced to turn because of the high waves."
"the Viking Sky sent just after noon to 14 in the afternoon out an emergency message asking for assistance after engine problems. On board were from the beginning of the 915 passengers and 458 crew members, according to the shipping company. The ship was on route along the Norwegian coast from Tromsø to Stavanger."
