A Viking cruise ship collided with another vessel over the weekend, the cruise line said.
The Viking Kvasir – a 443-foot long ship that can accommodate 190 passengers and 50 crew members – collided with a cargo ship in heavy fog on Sunday morning, a Viking spokesperson told USA TODAY in an email. The incident took place near Wesel, Germany.
“There were no significant injuries among guests or crew,” the spokesperson said. “The ship was cleared by authorities the evening of September 11 and has now continued its voyage without further delay.”
Viking did not say whether passengers aboard the ship would be compensated following the collision.

The incident is not the first of its kind for Viking. Twenty-eight were killed in a collision on the Danube River involving the Viking Sigyn ship in May 2019. Another Viking ship, Viking Freya, previously struck a bridge in southern Germany in 2016, killing two crew members, CBS News reported.
Viking launched its first river ship based in North America earlier this month, welcoming passengers aboard the Viking Mississippi in Saint Paul, Minnesota, on Sept. 3. The ship will sail itineraries on the Upper and Lower Mississippi River between St. Paul and New Orleans.
