A Viking Cruises representative confirmed to Business Insider that the Viking Idun was involved in a collision with a cargo ship on Monday and was damaged in the crash, but the representative did not specify the number of people who were injured.

There were 171 passengers and 51 crew members on the Idun at the time of the accident, though no passengers were injured, the representative said.

"The [Idun] sustained some damage near the bow and is currently docked in Terneuzen with all guests," the Viking representative said. "While damage of the ship is being assessed, guests will continue with a modified version of the itinerary."

The Viking representative said the company hopes to return the ship to service on Thursday.

A Viking ship stalled off the coast of Norway in March because of a lack of oil. A rescue operation removed more than 400 passengers from the ship before it returned to shore.
