The @CruiseNorwegian Escape was hit be a 100+ knot gust last night. The ship tilted and damage was everywhere. Crazy!

“I remember thinking about how calm it was for sailing out of New York in March and suddenly we got hit by a large gust of wind and the whole ship kind of just tilted to the side for about 30 seconds. Suddenly everything around me was starting to move. So I was used to some movement, but it was a very surreal escalation to ‘Oh this is normal’ to ‘This is very unusual and probably shouldn’t be happening”, Passenger Aaron Black said

The vessel arrived at Port Canaveral with no damage.

The ship will leave n Tuesday at 9 p.m. ET as scheduled on its next voyage for Bahamas.
