- Now to the terrifying moments on the high seas, a storm rocking a Carnival cruise ship. We're hearing from the frightened passengers. Stephanie Ramos has the latest.
STEPHANIE RAMOS: This morning, the terrifying moments on the high seas.
- Pitching, diving, rocking, rolling. It was 11 straight hours of pure hell.
STEPHANIE RAMOS: The Carnival Sunshine cruise sailing into rough waters during a storm on the last night of its voyage from the Bahamas to Charleston Saturday, water streaming into cabins, damaging hallways and this gift shop.
- The winds sounded like a wind tunnel.
STEPHANIE RAMOS: 49-year-old passenger Sharon Tutrone and her mom, Rosemary, were on board celebrating. Sharon recently finished chemo and radiation for breast cancer. They rode out the storm inside their cabin on the 11th floor.
- I thought we were going to capsize. It was absolutely terrifying.
- You know, not reassuring us.
STEPHANIE RAMOS: Passenger Daniel Taylor says he was frustrated with the lack of communication from the crew.
- After the weather got really bad, nobody reached out. There was silence over the intercom system.
STEPHANIE RAMOS: But a Carnival spokesperson said that they "made several announcements about the weather and the delay it caused in returning to Charleston, asking guests to use extra precaution." "Some of the worst weather occurred in the overnight hours when announcements are not typically made, but guests and crew were safe."
Authorities say just some guests and crew needed minor medical attention. The ship left the next day with new passengers, off to another cruise. George.
- Stephanie Ramos. Thanks.
