A cruise ship with 206 passengers has run aground in an isolated area of ​​east Greenland and is unable to get off on its own, the Danish military’s Joint Arctic Command (JAC) said today.

The luxury cruise ship Ocean Explorer ran aground on Monday in Alpefjord, a national park about 1,400 kilometers northeast of Nuuk, the capital of Greenland.

There are no reports of injuries and those on board are not in any danger.

According to the military, there is also no risk to the environment.

A cruise ship in trouble in the national park is obviously cause for concern. The nearest help is far away, our units are far away, and the weather may not be favorablesaid JAC Chief Operating Officer Brian Jensen.

However, in this particular case, we do not see any immediate danger to people or the environment, which is reassuring“, he added.

The nearest JAC unit is an inspection vessel which was 1,200 nautical miles from the cruise ship at the time of the grounding.

That means it could reach Ocean Explorer on Friday morning, at best.

JAC said it had asked another nearby cruise ship to remain in the area so it could assist passengers if conditions changed.
