Cruise Ship Stuck off Norway, No Damage

Saturday, 01 November 2014 07:47 AM EDT

COPENHAGEN, Denmark — Norwegian rescue officials say a Bahamas-registered cruise liner with more than a thousand people on board has run aground in northern Norway, in sight of the pier where it was to be moored.

The Norwegian rescue services say some passengers have been allowed to leave the "Marco Polo" cruise ship, which ran aground in the Lofoten archipelago early Saturday. A Norwegian pilot was onboard "Marco Polo" and two tugboats were on their way to try to free the vessel.

Rescue officials say there were no injuries, and no damage to the ship has been found. The nationalities of the passengers and crew were not immediately known.
