The cruise ferry was sailing from Tallinn, Estonia, to Stockholm, Sweden. 989 people were on board before it sank in the Baltic Sea, with only 138 rescued alive, one of whom later died in hospital. People from 17 different nationalities lost their lives, with the vast majority of victims coming from Sweden (501) and Estonia (285).
