    That ain't a ship. That's a barge. There's a difference.

    That is insane, hope everyone made it out okay. It's even more incredible because there isn't even an obvious storm.

      The Marsh Fox I live in Florida and waves pick up long before hurricanes arrive. Even if the storm doesn't come ashore there's still going to be some rough seas.

    In 14 hours, seems like an ocean tug could have gotten to them. Turned them into the sea, towed in .....something..

      The sea was too rough for any tugboat to help them.

    It was unintentionally funny. That lady with the blonde hair and specs who got to her seat only to be walloped by the ceiling panels falling. Then again as the camera panned right. Hope she's is ok, but it was funny...

    I really have no sympathy for them! They chose to blow their money to be on a stupid cruse ship. Cruse ships are one of the most stupidest thing ever devised to part rich stupid people from their money! All it is is just a over priced and over rated hotel on the water and that is all it is!

    Someone in the video wants to "abdicate" the area? I don't get it. If he means "evacuate" the area then that's what he ought to say.

    Some 470 have been airlifted by helicopters off the ship to shore. That is info from the Norwegian SAR administration. Helicopters have been working non stop for 19 hours to get passengers off the ship. The engines are now working and the ship is being towed to shore where the remaining passengers will be able to disembark.

    The piano needs metal spikes all around or it will NEVER be as dangerous as much of the other loose furniture here.

    There were only about 100 People Rescued Probably the Injured and the Elderly. The Ship managed to Restart one o the Engines, and apparently moved to a safer location, and is Anchored Offshore.

    This is not surprising. Norwegian Cruise Liners take extreme risks with ships and their customer's lives all the time. They only care about profit, which is why they have one of the worst safety and maintenance of any liner co. You'd be better off sailing with Somali pirates - at least they send your body parts home afterwards.
