Geiranger oil spill cleaned up

/, Cruise News, Cruise Ships/Geiranger oil spill cleaned up

Before arriving at Geiranger I had been concerned at reports earlier in the week that Spirit of Adventure, the 352-passenger cruise ship owned by Saga, had left behind an oil slick after a mishap while transferring fuel between tanks.
But it turned out that only a small amount of light oil had leaked, and that crew members reacted within 20 seconds to contain the spillage.
There was certainly no sign of any oil when I sailed up the fjord on Queen Victoria on Wednesday.
The UNESCO World Heritage site, one of the most popular destinations in Norway, looked as pristine as ever, apart from a heavy infestation of troll dolls in the countless tourist shops.
