Stockholm was following her usual course South of the Nantucket Lightship at a speed of about 18 knots (33 km/h), with clear skies. Most of those in tourist class were emigrants from impoverished regions of southern Italy on their way to new lives in America. The area of Andrea Doria's hull where Stockholm's bow penetrated encompassed five passenger decks. After a long struggle to free her, largely on the part of her husband, Martha succumbed to her injuries a few hours after the collision. Île de France managed to rescue the bulk of the remaining passengers by shuttling its 10 lifeboats back and forth to Andrea Doria, and receiving lifeboat loads from those of the other ships already at the scene (as well as the starboard boats from Andrea Doria). (Filling the tanks with seawater as the fuel was emptied would have resulted in more costly procedures to refuel when port was reached.)

However, it was soon determined that half of the lifeboats, those on the port side, were unlaunchable due to the severe list, which left them high in the air. [2] The propulsion system consisted of steam turbines attached to twin screws, enabling the ship to achieve a service speed of 23 knots (43 km/h), with a top speed of 26 knots (48 km/h).
