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

The trip quickly turned into a nightmare when they headed back to NY in bad weather on Tuesday.

According to a statement from Norwegian Cruise Line, the "Breakaway" encountered stronger than forecasted weather conditions during the storm. "I'll never go on any type of boat again in my life after this".

"There were people crying, everyone was throwing up".

Passenger Karoline Ross told CBS it was "one of the scariest moments" of her life. "The elevator shafts were dripping water everywhere".

Fellow passenger Emma Franzese told CBS New York once the ship docked: "I'm completely traumatized".

Karoline Ross says her family's cruise started off as a relaxing and fun week in the Bahamas celebrating her father-in-law's 80th birthday and her daughter's engagement.

"During the early morning hours of January 4, Norwegian Breakaway encountered stronger than forecasted weather conditions due to winter storm Grayson during the trip's return to NY from the Bahamas".

The Breakaway's late arrival to NY delayed a 14-day cruise, and the company says those guests will receive a refund for the lost day. "But they wanted to get all those new customers with new money with a 14-day cruise".

"All guests and crew are safe", the company statement said.

"We sincerely apologise to our guests for these stronger than expected weather conditions and any resulting discomfort they may have experienced".

CBS2 reached out to other cruise lines. "We were dead center of the storm and I really think it was a poor decision", Del added.
