Rough Sailing For Cruise Ship Passengers In Hermine’s Path

BAYONNE, N.J. (CBS) – As Hermine threatens communities up and down the East Coast, it’s also making things unpleasant for cruise ship passengers in its path.

It was rough going for a while for Royal Caribbean Anthem of the Seas cruise ship passengers heading to Bermuda. Some on board said the waves kicked up to 40 or 50 feet.

CBS New York reports that the ship left from New Jersey on Saturday.

Several passengers have taken to social media to document the choppy conditions.

“We are sailing safely to Bermuda in winds of 34 knots at a distance of more than 140 miles from the storm center. Earlier today, our captain informed guests that we had experienced higher winds and gusts for a 2-3 hour period. We’ll continue to share weather information with our guests throughout their trip,” Royal Caribbean said in a statement on Sunday.
