Passenger Tells Story of Riding Out Hurricane Aboard the Cruise Ship Carnival Glory

Hurricane Sandy left a path of death and destruction in the Carribean and the US states along the Atlantic coast.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to the people who lost loved ones and their homes.
 
The Hurricane seriously affected the cruise ship industry, leading many to wonder how many passengers and crewmembers will be in need of a cruise ship injury lawyer.  Dozens of cruise ships had to change their intineraries to avoid the storm.   One ship, the Carnival Glory, had its own rocky start to a Caribbean itinerary due to the storm.
 
According to a Cruise Bruise report, Gretchen Rhodecap, a travel agent, was on board the Carnival Glory when the storm was making its way through the Bahamas. Rhodecap explained the sailing was anything but smooth after a passenger suffered a medical emergency during the storm.
 
"There was a medical emergency onboard the Carnival Glory last night and the ship had to turn around and head back to Norfolk so the Coast Guard could reach us to airlift the person off at around 11pm... so now we are arriving Nassau late..." recounted Rhodecap.
 
As Hurricane Sandy drew near, it caused the ship to rock back and forth.  Rhodecap said that being on the cruise ship was like "being on a rollercoaster."
 
"Carnival Glory changed the itinerary again due to Tropical Storm Sandy.... our port of call Friday at Freeport has been canceled... and we are not overnighting in Nassau either.  We will instead be docking at Port Canaveral... three days in Bahamas just turned into a half day and then Florida..."
 
The itinerary changes didn't stop there.  Rhodecap later wrote that the ship did not dock in Florida after all.  The ship had to remain at sea for three days to avoid the storm.
 
"We aren't going anywhere... word around the ship is that we are going further out into the Atlantic to avoid some of storm."
 
Rhodecap added that along with passengers, "there were a lot of crew at the medical center."
 
While no severe injuries have been reported due to Sandy, nearly everyone on board the Glory and other cruise lines who were affected by the wind and waves became ill with motion sickness.
 
It may be some time before we hear stories of more serious injuries.   Anyone who has suffered an accident onboard any cruise ship because of the storm is encouraged to seek legal help immediately.  Our office handles cruise ship injury cases, and we are here to help you obtain the maximum compensation for your injuries, and your pain and suffering.  Please call our firm today to get started on your injury claim right away.
