Rescue crews worked through the night on Saturday to rescue 1،300 people stranded on a cruise ship off the west coast of Norway، authorities said، BBC reported.

Police in the county of More og Romsdal said the ship suffered engine problems and all those aboard were being evacuated to shore.

Norway's sea rescue agency said the MV Viking Sky sent out a distress signal amid high waves and strong winds.

Five helicopters and several rescue ships were called in for the rescue.

One of the rescue ships - a freighter named Hagland Captain - also lost engine power and two helicopters were diverted to rescue its crew.

By Sunday morning، the ship had managed to restart three of its four engines and was attempting to move closer to the nearest port.
