In the early morning of June 27, 2018, the "Le Boreal" broke off her moorings in Leknes port. The rescue boat "Det Norske Veritas" was called in and got the ship back to the dock. The cruise ship had arrived in Leknes on June 26 and was scheduled to leave the dock at 04.00 a.m. At 3.30 a.m. the lifeboat from Ballstad was called. Upon its arrival, the cruise ship was well off the dock with the bow thruster running at full force. The "Det Norske Veritas" was able to push the ship back to its berth just after 4 a.m. It remained on site until the wind has calmed down. The "Le Boreal" had on board 230 passengers and a crew of 136. She finally sailed at 7.30 a.m. and headed to Svolvær and then on to the Troll Fjord and Tromsø.
