Environmental activists immobilized the Zuiderdam in the
port of Kiel, Germany, for six hours on June 9, according to German media
Protesters approached the ship in small boats from the sea,
with some standing on the ship's bulbous bow.
The protesters attached a climate change banner to the side
of the 1,916-passenger ship.
Police temporarily detained 46 people, allowing the ship to
leave port by 10 p.m. The ship was on
the last day of an eight-day Baltic cruise roundtrip from Copenhagen.
