(FOX NEWS) – An evacuation of cruise ship passengers was reportedly underway Saturday after a vessel off the coast of Norway had propulsion issues amid foul weather.

The Viking Sky, a luxury vessel carrying 1,300 passengers and crew members, signaled for help after it was hit with the engine problems and began migrating landward, The Associated Press reported, citing the Norwegian newspaper VG.

Photos from the scene showed the large vessel surrounded by intensely choppy waters.

The ship was ultimately able to drop anchor in Hustadsvika Bay, according to police in Moere og Romsdal; responders reportedly arrived with both helicopters and boats in their effort to unload anyone aboard.
