Rogue Wave Hits Cruise Liner

The rouge wave struck the 14 deck, 965-foot cruise liner as high as the tenth-deck, breaking windows and flooding 62 cabins. The ship was diverted to Charleston for repairs. Three hundred of the passengers decided not to return to the vessel and made their own arrangements to get back to New York City.

A spokesperson for Norwegian Cruise Lines (NCL) said the safety of the ship was never compromised. But, passengers have told tales of flying furniture and broken glass. NCL said that it would provide the passengers with a fifty-percent discount voucher for use on a future cruise.
