Cruise Ship Sails into winter storm

Cruise Ship Sails into winter storm

A passenger on a massive cruise liner that got pummelled by huge nine-metre swells in the middle of a fierce winter cyclone pleaded with people to "pray for us all".

"Due to winter storm Grayson, Norwegian Breakaway will have a delayed arrival into NY on Friday, January 5". "It was so tilted I was shaking".

The trip left the Bahamas last week before the storm to make its way to NY.

The Norweigan Cruise Line ship was sailing across the Atlantic Ocean from the Bahamas to NY when the winter storm hit.

Now safely on land, traumatised passengers have revealed how they "held on for dear life" and one woman even described the incident as the "scariest moment of her life". "I'll never go on any type of boat again in my life after this".

Terrorists continue to operate freely inside Pakistan and there is a relationship between terrorist organisations and the establishment, he said.

"There were people crying, everyone was throwing was a nightmare", Olivia Ross said.

The United States Coast Guard said that ports can have restrictions when it comes to weather, but sailing through bad weather is up to the ship's captain, CBS News reported. "The elevator shafts were dripping water everywhere".

"I'm completely traumatized", passenger Emma Franzese told CBS New York.

"Norwegian Breakaway encountered stronger than forecasted weather conditions due to winter storm Grayson during the trip's return to NY from the Bahamas", the company said in a statement.

Chuck Tredo (l.) and Ree Tredo (r.), from Dallas, were boarding the Norwegian Cruise Line on Saturday. "But they wanted to get all those new customers with new money with a 14-day cruise". "That's how I felt that night", Elizabeth Vogt said, but added that the crew "put on a really happy face" throughout the ordeal. "We sincerely apologize to our guests for these stronger than expected weather conditions and any resulting discomfort they may have experienced", the company's statement read.
