The Swedish Coast Guard Service received the signal at about 6 pm. There were more than a thousand people onboard. No injuries have been reported. A tugboat was dispatched to assist the cruise ship, while rescuers were working at the site.
The engines of the vessel had apparently stopped due to a power outage. The cruiseferry carrying 1065 passengers was towed back to Port Stockholm for hull inspections. Princess Anastasia was en-route to Helsinki and Saint Petersburg.
