The ship weighing almost 114,000 tons is being maintained in that position with the machines, as well as with the bow and stern side propellers
Cruiser "Crown Princess", 288 meters long, of the American company Princess Cruises, was caught in trouble in the Bay of Kotor on Thursday morning since it was pulled by an extremely strong east wind from the usual anchoring position and it brought the cruiser very close to the coast of Prcanj.
The ship weighing almost 114,000 tons is being maintained in that position with the machines, as well as with the bow and stern side propellers.
It is an emergency situation, and there are currently no dangers for the ship to run against the shore or to hit the coast, Vijesti reports.
A lot of citizens gathered on the shore to see the situation, and the sea is completely blurred in Prcanj due to the constant operation of propellers.
