I’ve never been on a cruise before because I have never wanted to be on a cruise. I do not see what is so appealing of being stuck on a big ship with four thousand other people when getting caught in a storm in the middle of the ocean is a possibility. Which is exactly what happened to this cruise ship.
It was caught in the middle of the “bomb cyclone” that hit the East Coast last week. The onboard footage looks like something from my nightmares. Furious winds, leaks and flooding everywhere and choppy seas throwing the ship about, knocking paintings off the walls.
The video’s caption asserts that the ship was rocking for three days.
You know where I’d be if all this was going on around me? Curled up around the toilet, having just turned myself inside out from vomiting due to seasickness.
