Default Damage and Injuries on Brilliance of the Seas

Apparently Royal Caribbean's Brilliance of the Seas got caught in very high winds, as strong as 70 knots, in the Mediterranean. There was apparently some onboard damage and some injuries, including two people with broken bones. The ship did not lose power.

This and that ship off Antarctica being caught in bad weather with no power makes what happened to the Carnival Splendor, in calm waters, look like nothing.
