Cruise ship carrying 206 people runs aground in Greenland | CNN

Article in gCaptain:

According to the article the ship “was mired in glacial silt in a remote fjord”.


Is that glacial silt in the near background?

Ship’s web page:

This is the section that made me think that the ship must have electronics up the wazoo but I don’t know exactly what this means as far as what was actually onboard.

“This small ship is outfitted with the latest cutting-edge technology, sustainability and navigation capabilities”

From the article:

More ship traffic also means a higher risk of accidents in remote, poorly mapped areas known for harsh and unpredictable weather conditions.

The subject of poorly charted areas was the subject of this recent thread.
