MIAMI, Florida: Carnival Cruise Lines has said a cruise ship, the Carnival Sunshine, which sailed through rough seas off the South Carolina coast over the Memorial Day weekend, is ready to sail on its next cruise.
On social media, however, terrified passengers on the Carnival Sunshine posted videos of water pouring through a flooded cabin hallway, and photos of flooded on-board stores.
Passenger Daniel Taylor told WCIV-TV, "The crew left us blind, not reassuring us what was going on, where we were heading to, what the plan was. They could have updated us and let us know something."
In a statement to The Associated Press this week, Carnival Cruise said that the Carnival Sunshine's return to Charleston, South Carolina, from the Bahamas, was delayed by prolonged bad weather and rough seas in the area.
The vessel's next cruise, scheduled to leave Charleston this weekend, was delayed, but has now departed, the Miami-based company added.
No serious injuries were reported.
