No injuries reported
‘All guests and crew are safe, and we have no reported injuries,’ parent company Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. tweeted.
Evacuating as a precautionary measure
The ship’s 46 passengers and non-essential crew are being evacuated to a nearby vessel as a precautionary measure and are being picked up by the 100-passenger Celebrity Flora.
The company said it was not aware of any environmental impact but will continue to check closely. Celebrity Xpedition's condition is being assessed.
A few months back, the ship's passenger capacity was reduced to 48 from 100.
