To have all propulsion power go down is almost ("almost", sic) impossible so fuel is probably the cause but that is difficult as well. It could be
water or bacteria or a main supply fuel leak causing them to shut down everything. The first two are easily controlled initially but difficult and
time consuming to fix after the event. The 3rd is impossible to predict and difficult to fix at sea and if the ship is rocking violently.
I hope Viking Line have not been cutting back on Engineering competence lately.
It could be Trump's fault.
The ship is Norwegian flagged so the enquiry will root out the cause, no problem. I presume that the official report, without redaction, will be made
