Images on social media showed the large cruise liner stuck just off a wooded islet among the picturesque Aland islands, an autonomous region of Finland 70 kilometers from Sweden.
The Finnish authorities have yet to confirm whether the operation to rescue the ship’s 200 passengers and 80 crew is complete. ■
