ENGLISH ESCAPE: More guests, crew members injured after "extreme" gusts of wind Norwegian cruise ships





Several guests and crew members were injured aboard a Norwegian cruise ship late Sunday after an extreme gust of wind had shaken the ship and tilted it into the gate, according to the cruise line.

Ambulances waited on Tuesday morning when the Norwegian flight thundered in Port Canaveral in case of injured passengers demanding extra caution.

The cruise line said that there was no damage to the ship and that those injured were treated by the ship's medical staff.

The cruise line said that the extreme gust of wind clocked in at 1

00 knots, which is more than 100 miles per hour.

The cruise line has not said how many people were injured. The ship can carry as many as 4,000 passengers and 1,700 crews.

Passenger Grace Corey said she and her boyfriend, Louis Kent, were on the ship's 15th floor.

"He actually opened the door to our balcony, and he just saw a wave coming to us," she said of her boyfriend. "He closed it very fast and was like," We have to get out of here. Something is not right. ""

Kent said it was clear that something unusual had happened.

"They have an art gallery," he said. "Art was broken. There was glass everywhere. There was a lot of damage."

Passenger Richard Green said he feared the ship could tip over.

"Well, I thought the boat went down," he said. "At this point I said," This is it. It felt as if the boat was turning. ""
