What its like on a Cruise Liner in a Heavy Storm

Filed Under (Yeah Bloody Nice) by Chriswah on 14-09-2010

Its probably something like the below. I am not sure that I would be able to hold on to my lunch in these conditions.

There is a piece below this – only 42 people were injured! Only 42, that is not bad at all.

On August 1, the Pacific Sun ran into a heavy storm 400 miles north of New Zealand, hitting 25-foot-tall waves and 50-knot winds. Its 1732 passengers weren’t prepared to endure the madness that ensued. Absolutely crazy.

The video seems like a slapstick comedy until you see people smacking against columns and walls. However, they were lucky: After returning to Auckland from its eight-night trip to the Vanuatu islands, only 42 passengers were injured.

One of the passengers said: “It was like being in a disaster movie. There were screams and people crying as they looked for their lost children.” It sounds exactly like a cruise in good weather, but with moving furniture.
