Passengers traveling to Vanua Levu from Natovi last night on board a vessel were stuck out at sea for about two hours.

Passengers who contacted The Fiji Times said the engine just switched off causing a total blackout in the vessel that belongs to Interlink Shipping Line Ltd.

At about 6.30am this morning, a passenger confirmed that they had not reached Nabouwalu.

“We asked around but they didn’t tell us anything.”

It is believed this alleged incident happened after midnight.

Comments are currently being sought from the shipping company.
