VIDEO: Insane footage shows giant waves crashing into a cruise ship while he looks out the window

There is some crazy footage from inside of a Royal Caribbean cruise ship as it ran into a huge storm last year. In the film, you can see the waves that are crashing against the side of the ship are GIGANTIC! Around 30 ft. A passenger recorded the amazing sight.

The ship was loaded down with 4,500 guests and 1,600 crew members and had the destination set for Port Canaveral in Florida. Things got a little dicey out on the water, so much so that they were forced to turn around and head back to port in ‘exotic’, New Jersey. The winds and rocking were so bad, that many of the passengers were made to stay within their cabins overnight, while the abrasive winds and waves knocked around a lot of items on deck.

In the video, we can hear a passenger, the same who is recording, say “We’re just staying in one place, hoping not to die.”

In response, another voice can be heard saying “Jesus Christ man. We’re underwater, under the third floor,” when a giant wave came crashing against the ship.

The ship endured its damages and four people were injured as a result of the massive waves. If you look at the ship as it’s rocking back and fourth, you can tell that the tilt angle of the giant mass of metal got to at least a 45 degree angle. The National Weather Service’s Ocean Prediction Center issued a warning four days before the cruise was ready to set sail, but Royal Caribbean said the weather was not foreseen. It was earlier headed to Florida and the Bahamas. Fortunately, all guests were given full refunds and discounts in case they wanted to take future cruises.

In John Hawkins’ new book, ‘101 Things All Young Adults Should Know’, he teaches in number 51, “Prepare in case it all goes wrong.” The cruise company did a wonderful job reimbursing all the customers. You couldn’t expect such a thing like a massive sea ocean storm and yet, they did their customers right.

Take note, airlines.
