Powerful storm floods cruise ship

A Carnival Cruise Line ship was battered by high waves causing widespread shipboard flooding

Some of Carnival Sunshine’s staterooms, public areas and hallways were flooded.

The ship was pounded by high seas and strong winds on its return to Charleston, South Carolina from the Bahamas.

It encountered a tumultuous combination of big waves and powerful winds lashing the ship for hours.

One cruiser on Twitter described ‘14 hours of high winds, rain and massive waves.’

Water caused shattered glass and several cabins had to be taken out of service because of flood damage.

Non serious medical assistance was required for some passengers and crew.

Due to the storm, both the ship’s return to Charleston and its subsequent departure were delayed.

Passengers described terrifying 40 feet waves with the ship tilting heavily from side to side.
