The Viking Orion was not allowed to dock in an Australian port, and hundreds of passengers were stranded on board. The BBC writes about it.

It is reported that the yacht was supposed to call at the port in Adelaide, but the authorities found on the hull an accumulation of microorganisms, plants or small animals that pose a danger to the local ecosystem. Local officials said the ship's hull must be cleaned before entering the port.

The Australian Department of Fisheries noted that biocontamination control is a common practice for all arriving international vessels.

“Professional divers were engaged directly by the line/agent of the vessel to clean the hull while anchored outside Australian waters” , — reported in the department.

The material says that the ship was denied permission to dock in Christchurch and Dunedin in New Zealand, as well as in Hobart Tasmania.

One of the passengers told reporters that tourists have not been able to leave the ship since December 26. 4 stops in ports have already been missed.

“Most passengers are trying to make the most of and enjoy an extended stay at sea. But we were looking forward to excursions to four ports, which we sorely lack,” the man said.

Another passenger complained that she had to save money for 2 years to pay for a cruise to Australia, but she will not see the continent in the end.

The publication writes that the 14-deck vessel for 930 people, built in 2018, anchored about 27 kilometers from the coast while it is being cleaned.

In a statement, the yacht operator admitted that a limited amount of standard marine vegetation is removed from the ship's hull. The company noted that they are already working on compensation to tourists.

We also recall that in England, women saved a dolphin that had thrown itself onto the shore of the English Channel. At first, the women thought it was a shark. They tried to keep him near the tail, for fear of being bitten. In addition, the animal turned out to be quite heavy.
