(THE LOCAL) The Independence of the Seas, at 154,407 gross tons, is one of the largest passenger vessels ever built, costing the company $828 million to build. Its 15 decks can accommodate 4,370 passengers and 1,360 crew.

But this did not stop the plucky official arresting the vessel.

According to The Norwegian Coastal Administration (NCA), which ordered the boat to be seized, Royal Caribbean owed it some 600,000 Norwegian kroner which should have been paid in mid-October last year.
