Top Stories - Sat, 01/06/2018 - 12:07

As a powerful 'bomb cyclone' ravaged the U.S. East Coast with snow and high winds this week, a Norwegian Cruise Line ship sailed right into its path, giving thousands of passengers a fearsome experience they aren't likely to forget. SEE ALSO: Incredible photos from space show off the historic East Coast 'bomb cyclone' Passengers on the Norwegian Breakaway cruise were treated to monstrous waves, winds, rain, and flooding for multiple days as the ship made its way to New York City, navigating right into the storm that made headlines all week, passengers told CBS New York Friday. The videos that passengers shared are harrowing. #BOMBCYLONE at sea aboard the #NCLbreakaway pic.twitter.com/o2T4s7iv5M — Christina Mendez (@christinamendez) January 4, 2018 Some were more in awe of the boat-rocking waves than afraid of them. Even if passengers steered clear of the deck and windows on the cruise, the onslaught of rain caused flooding, and one passenger shared a video showing running water on the carpeted floor and more leaking through the ceiling. Passengers who spoke to CBS New York shared stories of people crying and throwing up, and general panic. "When you’re on a boat in the middle of the ocean and water is pouring down the stairs, you're thinking 'this is not going to end well,'" passenger Karoline Ross told CBS New York. "This was the worst moment of my life." "I'm completely traumatized," passenger Emma Franzese told CBS New York. "I'll never go on any type of boat again in my life after this." After the tumultuous trip, Norwegian Cruise Line apologized to guests in two statements, saying the ship "encountered stronger than forecasted weather conditions." Though as meteorologists were quick to note on social media, the storm was well-forecast, and the ship should not have been in that location. Oh look, another cruise ship with a death wish sailing into a massive talked about for days storm, then saying 'that storm wasn't forecast...duno where it came from' https://t.co/seGtXVr1xB — Eric Fisher (@ericfisher) January 6, 2018 WATCH: This NYC store is an environmentalist's wonderland
