Cruise Ship Caught in Major Storm

If you were on the East Coast yesterday, you know that we got walloped with a major Nor’Easter with winds over the ocean reaching hurricane strength.

Now imagine being on a ship in the middle of that.

The Anthem of the Seas was on its way from Cape Liberty in New Jersey to Port Canaveral for a port-of-call stop, before it was to head to the Bahamas when it was caught in the storm.  4 people were injured and the ship was damaged.

Royal Caribbean decided Monday to cancel the scheduled seven-day cruise, and sail the Anthem back to its home port in New Jersey. Passengers will be offered refunds, plus partial credits for a future cruise.
