    Giant Waves and Giant Boats

    I would love to go on a cruise. I think it would be very relaxing, and a wonderful experience, as long as I didn't get the flu. Of course, I would want to go on a BIG ship. I mean, the Sea is huge, and when irked, Mother Nature can really pound you.

    CHARLESTON, S.C. - A huge wave damaged a cruise ship returning from the Bahamas over the weekend, smashing windows, flooding more than 60 cabins and injuring four passengers.

    The Norwegian Dawn, a 965 foot passenger liner, was travelling from the Bahamas back to New York, when she ran into some severe weather. The ship was diverted to Charleston for repairs after the incident that left four passengers injured, and many more likely scared witless.

    “The ship was hit by a freak wave that caused two windows to break in two different cabins,” Norwegian Cruise Line said in a statement. It said 62 cabins flooded and four passengers had cuts and bruises.

    The passengers on board had all been wearing their safety life vests and now, the passengers who's cabins were flooded are being flown home from Charleston. The company has stated that the safety of the ship "was in no way compromised by the incident".
