The winter storm was part of the "bomb cyclone" that hammered parts of the USA east coast with 50 km/h gusts and 30 cm of snow late last week.

Brenda Walsh-Matias booked a Norwegian cruise from NY to the Bahamas, hoping for a relaxing getaway to start the new year. "'It was so tilted I was shaking".

En route from the Bahamas to the Big Apple, the Norwegian Breakaway docked in NY on the weekend with a number of vacationers just thankful to be back on land.

Cruise vessel the Norwegian Breakaway sailed straight into the thick of the storm that has been smashing the eastern seaboard of the United States, after it departed the picturesque and balmy Bahamas last week. "I'll never go on any type of boat again in my life after this".

"The waves were over 40 feet and it was continuous - children crying, people seasick, vomiting all over the boat".

Scientists Have Discovered Massive Ice Sheets on Mars
Images of the erosional scarps reveal geologic features of the ice, such as banded patterns and color variations due to layering. Furthermore, some of these massive ice deposits were found to be more than 330 feet (100 meters) thick.

Passengers have since told of how they held on for life and feared their safety as the boat was rocking "like crazy".

There was water and broken glass everywhere.

A Stony Brook family said their cruise to the Bahamas took a frightening turn when their ship sailed straight into the winter storm that pummeled the East Coast last week. "It was a nightmare", Olivia Ross told CBS New York. All guests will receive a refund of one day of their cruise fare, in the form of an onboard credit.

On their way back to NY at the end of last week, they sailed through the massive storm. "All guests and crew are safe", a spokesman said.

Chuck Tredo (l.) and Ree Tredo (r.), from Dallas, were boarding the Norwegian Cruise Line on Saturday. I honestly wasn't sure we were going to make it through the night. "We sincerely apologize to our guests for these stronger than expected weather conditions and any resulting discomfort they may have experienced", the company's statement read.
