479 people were safely airlifted off a Viking Sky cruise ship, which was stranded in rough seas off the coast of Norway with 1,373 passengers on board. 436 guests and 458 crew still remained on board the ship, but they have since returned to shore, as well. Although bad weather conditions persisted on Sunday, the vessel regained power in three out of four engines and was traveling alongside two supply ships and one tug assist vessel, which brought the ship safely to a quay in a western Norway harbor. 20 people reportedly sustained non-life threatening injuries while the ship was rocked by wind and waves, the cruise line said.
