A Viking Sky Cruise Ship is as the mercy of the ocean as it floats like a sitting duck in the middle of the sea facing powerful waves.
Dramatic video footage shows the moment a cruise ship rocked from side to side in stormy seas as it became stranded off the coast of Norway.
In clips posted online, debris falls from the ceiling of the Viking Sky ship while furniture including chairs slides across the floor as passengers sit waiting to be rescued.
There were among 1,300 people on board the vessel which sent a mayday call after losing engine power, prompting a dramatic rescue in high winds.
Some 479 passengers were airlifted to shore. Viking Cruises said 20 people suffered injuries and were receiving treatment in Norway.
