Climate activists using small boats and climbing equipment blockaded a cruise ship for six hours in a German harbour to protest against its carbon emissions, police said on Monday.
About 50 protesters with banners reading “Cruises kill climate” on Sunday delayed the departure of the Zuiderdam, operated by Holland America Line, from the North Sea port of Kiel.
The ship finally left around 10pm (2000 GMT) for Copenhagen after police had temporarily detained 46 activists, several of whom had climbed onto the ship and onto a harbourside crane.
The activists were protesting against the “catastrophic local and global consequences of cruises” as well as what they claimed are the crew's poor working conditions.
