Watch as a cruise ship gets battered by Hurricane Michael
Once again, rough weather has disrupted what should have been a leisurely cruise. The outer bands of Hurricane Michael tossed a cruise ship around, jostling hundreds of vacation-goers in the Gulf of Mexico.
Royal Caribbean’s Empress of the Seas ship was caught up the roiling seas just off the coast of Isla de la Juventud, Cuba, according to CNN.
One passenger caught video of the choppy water.
