Default Video of Ship in Storm - Amazing

Well, it isn't "amazing" but it is interesting. Once again, when I see things like this I am reminded how often the media protrays cruisers as "softies" who are old and infirm.

There are people getting tossed around a lot in this video, including the woman who hits the pole (ouch! sorry). And it keeps going. But I am guessing they mostly toughed it out.

Kudos to the crew for trying the help as much as possible.

Don't think I should have watched that before my first cruise.

OOps - sorry Carolina girl.

Please trust us on this one - that would be EXTREMELY rare. Besides that, I dont think anyone was hurt. It is just a little chaotic for a minute for so.

If your first cruise is in the Caribbean I'll bet you forget you are even on a ship.

Paul - you scooped NBC - they showed this video at the end of the Nightly News last night. Brian Williams said the video is from sometime in 2008.

Carolina - you would be hard pressed to find anyone on these boards who has experienced anything like this. The odds weigh heavily in your favor.

It is from May Day 2008 (5-1-08). Here is a site that covered it back when, and has additional video as well:

Looks like a hollywood movie scene.
