Logo-princesscruises-sm[1]  Yesterday the Caribbean Princess encountered a minor, quick list while cruising Canada & New England. The 113,000 grt ship got caught in rough weather in the Atlantic when she leaned a bit. The extent of the list is unknown. As is duration. But be advised this is not a serious situation. No passengers were hurt, and one crew member had a very minor injury.

From Cruise Critic:

Currently onboard, off the coast of New England. We’re in a storm, with gale-force winds up to 70 knots. We listed a bit this morning … several waiters in the Horizon Court fell, carrying trays of food or other dining supplies. A piano in the Explorer’s Lounge slid off the stage, and was totaled. The galley and backstage tours were cancelled. The captain (Marco Fortezze) has slowed down;

    I was on board! It was scary and a major happening on our trip. The pools on the 16th floor or deck emptied as witnessed by two of our traveling companions. The entire display of framed oil paintings dropped like dominoes. It was amazing how the crew recouped and had dinner for us that night! I was impressed!! To those of us on board, it was rather harrowing even though I know it could have been a lot worse! It was a “Thank You Lord” moment!
