A Viking river cruise ship collided with a cargo ship in foggy conditions on the Rhine River over the weekend.

"We can confirm that the Viking Kvasir collided with a cargo ship in heavy fog near Wesel, Germany, the morning of September 11, 2022," a Viking spokesperson said. "There were no significant injuries among guests or crew. The ship was cleared by authorities the evening of September 11 and has now continued its voyage without further delay."

The 443-foot ship can accommodate 190 guests and 50 crewmembers. 

The Viking Kvasir sails the company's nine-night Holland & Belgium cruise that primarily sails Dutch and Flemish waterways and includes a stop in Wesel for day excursions before setting sail again in the evening for Nijmegen in the Netherlands.
