The Viking Sky in Bergen, about a month before the incident. 2019.

Cruise Ship Sails Into Storm


    I joined a dozen or so spectators on the pier across from Skolten to watch the Viking Sky arrive. A man drove his blue economy hatchback to the edge of the dock and opened his door. A group of older tourists stood around in awe. A couple with a baby stroller paused for a few minutes to observe the ship’s docking. Bergen’s port traffic continues year-round, but it’s rare to see large cruise ships between October and April.
