No New Details on Hurtigruten's Richard With
All's quiet on the fate of Hurtigruten's Richard With, which ran aground yesterday due to heavy winds while docking in Trondheim, Norway. Hurtigruten spokespersons in the U.K. were unable to provide new information today on the status of the ship; a Hurtigruten U.S. contact did not respond to our queries by press time.

As reported previously, future cruises have already been impacted, though it is unclear at this point how extensive the anticipated repair process will be. The 11,205-ton, 691-passenger expedition ship is resting on stable ground as of two hours after the grounding, and divers were sent down to examine the propellers that bore the brunt of the impact.

No passengers or crew were injured in the incident; all were evacuated safely.

We'll keep you posted.
