Canadian Coast Guard Saves Cruise Ship Passengers Stuck in Arctic

Cruise ship passengers who've been stranded in the Arctic for almost two days were rescued by the Canadian Coast Guard Sunday. The Clipper Adventurer cruise ship ran aground Friday when it hit a rock that wasn't on the map.

It was carrying 110 passengers on a cruise through the Northwest Passage when the mishap happened. No injuries have been reported among the passengers and 69 crew members on board, Globe and Mail says.

The passengers are being taken to Kugluktuk, a small town on the shore of the Arctic Ocean, where accommodations have been arranged by the cruise ship company, said Nichols. They are then expected to fly to the Canadian city of Edmonton. The grounded vessel is stable, but rests with a slight list, according to the company that operates the cruise ship, Adventure Canada.

"Weather remains favourable as passengers continue to enjoy onboard programming and hospitality," the company said in a statement, CNN International reports.
