Waves batter Cruise Ship Yesterday...

Wow, Glad I wasn't on this ship, all those poor people... must have had a very traumatic experience. Bet Doughnuts to Dollars, Not ONE will ever get into a boat, ...of any size!

TWO passengers were treated for broken bones after their luxury cruise ship was caught in stormy seas in the Mediterranean.

The Brilliance of the Seas was buffeted by 70-knot winds, heavy rain and giant waves as it tried to reach a scheduled stop in Alexandria, Egypt, Sky News said.
The storm caused the 90,000-tonne ship to rock violently as waves crashed over windows as high as the 10th deck, sending furniture and passengers flying and causing power cuts in some areas.

At least the Capt. was able to keep it heading into the waves, if not, "she" could have capsized.

From what I know, the Capt. knew they're was ruff seas ahead, and made the decision to go ahead into it.

If anyone finds home camcorder/phone video from the passengers on-board, please post. I've seen some on the news, but can't find any on-line. I'm sure they've been uploaded...
