about calm seas beautiful weather picturesque moments everything just
perfect you’ve saved your money you’re going on a cruise how about going on a
cruise to Venice Italy to st. Mark’s Square only to find out when you get
there oh no the worst flooding since the 1960s
yep this week Venice is flooded and it is bad the merchants and the city
fathers are doing the best they can to accommodate the visitors who are coming
in and a lot of these folks are cruise ship visitors who are just coming in for
the day hoping to get the perfect shot maybe enjoy a cup of coffee in st.
Mark’s Square and enjoy the views uh-uh not happening this isn’t the only place
in the North Atlantic this week this kind of weather hit and it affected a
number of ships but the one that was affected the most was navigator of the
Seas Royal Caribbean ‘he’s big ship they had to bring her in on an emergency run
into VGO a 10-day cruise with six or seven stops is now a 10-day cruise with
three stops the ship had to be pumped out it was flooded in the lower decks
they had a whole puncture on their hull because of a stabilizer issue it’s been
repaired but people are shaken up meanwhile in Lafitte Zia in Italy the
winds are so bad even in port the carnot via a celebrity cruise ship with the X
on the funnel they’re broke away from her moorings and she bumped into a
Kostas ship before three tugboats could be brought in to get her back to where
she belongs the winds were just horrific the very bad news this week a de Nova

    That could ruin a vacation if you dream of Venice and arrive to find it underwater.

    I’ve seen videos of the flooding in Galveston, TX too!! Don’t know how the passengers got on their ship! Water was up to waist high with the passengers carrying their luggage above their heads!!
    Not much anyone can do about the weather – but the arson on the Aida ship – wow!

    I work in a cruise ship and this is what i can say in 11 years of my work.. passengers are not safe.the foods the serving the linen the security are not good.. so i recommend all passenger go for a plane a nd hotel tour never go in a cruise line..
