A Royal Caribbean cruise ship was pounded by 30 foot waves during a recent voyage, and the event was all caught on tape.
The winds outside the Anthem of the Seas cruise ship reportedly reached up to 120 mph as the ship sailed through a powerful storm last February. Passengers were reportedly terrified; one man half-joked “We’re staying in one place hoping not to die”.
Royal Caribbean was heavily criticized for sailing the 4,500-passenger ship through the remnants of a hurricane. The incident resulted in overturned tables and chairs and downed cookware and silverware.
Despite the incredibly dangerous situation caused by the incident, no serious injuries were reported.
