The MS Silja Symphony, a Tallink ferry operating the Helsinki-Stockholm route, was stranded dockside in Stockholm following a breakdown on October 27.
The Silja Symphony was scheduled to depart for Helsinki at 4:45 p.m. local time, but its departure was delayed, and then canceled altogether by 9 p.m.
The ship was carrying 2,100 passengers, who were given the option to sleep onboard; some passengers were redirected to the MS Galaxy, which operated the Stockholm-Turku route.
The breakdown affected stabilizers, which reduced the ship’s roll. (ERR/Business World Magazine)
