Passengers were forced to put on life-jackets and swim to shore after a tender boat struck a reef at Arorangi, part of the Cook Islands, in the South Pacific Ocean.
The tender, which was carrying 90 passengers travelling aboard Holland America Line’s ms Amsterdam, struck a reef while attempting to transport passengers to the beach.
Another tender boat tried to assist in freeing the vessel, but was unable to move it. Six passengers were initially brought to shore by the assisting tender boat, but when conditions became too rough, the cruise ship’s captain and crew took water out to the tender, then helped the remaining passengers walk to the nearby shore.
