  • You've saved all year to take the vacation of a lifetime on a cruise ship.

  • After you set sail the fun begins, the band starts playing, and soon you'll be gorging

  • on seemingly never-ending buffet items.

  • After a few days, a few too many drinks and a couple of extra pounds added to your body,

  • you decide that evening to take part in the, “Murder Mysteryparty.

  • You love that kind of thing, thewhodunnitcaperyou remember the last time you played,

  • and the killer was the servant, who committed the murder with a lead pipe in the ballroom.

  • Half way through your game, people start running around covered in blood, and of course you

  • think this is all part of the fun.

  • It isn't…someone has actually been murdered.

  • What we just told you is a true story, and now we will explain.

  • 10.

  • The Cruise Ship Murder In 2017, the Emerald Princess set off from

  • Seattle with 3,400 on board on a journey to Southeast Alaska.

  • One of those passengers would not survive the trip.

  • During the night of the murder mystery party a couple on that ship were having a domestic

  • dispute, one that would end with the man beating his wife to death.

  • Soon staff and medical officers were on the scene, and what they saw before them was a

  • woman covered in blood.

  • A ship security officer subdued the man and put him in handcuffs.

  • Some passengers on the ship had heard screams and some would later see staff with the woman's

  • blood on them.

  • One passenger later told the media, “People were running through the hall with blood all

  • over them and trying to get security.”

  • They actually thought this was some kind of hoax, just part of the game, but of course

  • they were wrong.

  • It was later revealed that the woman had died from blunt force trauma to her head and face.

  • The man admitted to what he had done and is now in jail.

  • He could be facing a life sentence.

  • Have stranger things happened on cruise ships?

  • The answer is yes, and like always, we'll leave the best until last.

  • Maybebestis the wrong wordwe should probably have saidworst.”

  • 9.

  • Poop Cruise In 2013, some of the 4,000 people aboard the

  • Carnival Triumph cruise ship woke up to the smell of smoke and the sound of fire alarms.

  • The ship was on fire.

  • What happened shortly after was the ship lost power and was left stranded in the Gulf of

  • Mexico.

  • Ok, so the fire was extinguishedsurely things could haven't been that bad.

  • Well... things were really bad.

  • You see, those 4,000 people on that ship had no air conditioningMost of the time they

  • were left without any lights, and some people complained later that they had to go without

  • water and food..

  • So, why was it called thePoop Cruise.”

  • That's because the toilets weren't functioning and sewage was building up.

  • 4,000 people created quite a lot of poop in the four days that the ship was stranded.

  • People later sued the company and described in dramatic detail how people were huddled

  • together on the ship's decks not knowing how things would turn out.

  • They explained that the human sewage from overflowing toilets made its way to the deck

  • and there was a terrible stench.

  • We guess this might sound quite amusing to some of our viewers, but the experience was

  • traumatic for those passengers.

  • They had paid for what was supposed to be the trip of a lifetime and instead spent days

  • in darkness in a sea of poop.

  • This is how one woman later described the experience when she was testifying in court,

  • “I did not get physically injured.

  • I got mentally injured

  • I think about the smell, the stench and the bad things.

  • All the memories come flooding back, and I can't stop them.”

  • Another witness said she and others thought they were going to die, and if not, then just

  • get ill from the sewage.

  • She said in court, “There was lots of urine and feces all the way up to the rim of everyone.”

  • The Poop Cruise was certainly a holiday in hell.

  • But as you'll see, things could have been worse.

  • 8.

  • Mass Sickness On the poop cruise most of the injuries that

  • were sustained were of a mental kind, but on a cruise ship that left the U.S. for the

  • Caribbean in 2010, a lot of people became extremely ill all of a sudden.

  • Imagine this.

  • You're on a ship with over 1,800 guests and suddenly hundreds of them just start throwing

  • up and come down with a bad case of diarrhea.

  • Passengers go out on the deck and then suddenly something shifts in their stomach.

  • They vomit all over the placeand right across from them another person vomits.

  • It becomes a kind of vomit-athon.

  • It's actually what you might call a viral relay.

  • What had happened is a stomach virus had been passed from one person to another and in the

  • end this virus affected more than 400 people on the ship.

  • To stop the spread, people were told to wash their hands often or better still, isolate

  • themselves in their cabins.

  • That was not exactly what you'd call a colorful vacation in the Caribbeanholed up in a

  • cabin waiting for the mass pooping and vomiting to die down.

  • That's the problem with cruise ships.

  • If one person brings a virus on board it can quickly spread.

  • We think you all know a story of when this recently happened, but that's a tale for

  • another day.

  • 7.

  • Bad Weather You've all seen videos of cruise ships having

  • a hard time in bad weather, and usually the ships can handle it even though passengers

  • might get thrown around a bit.

  • But sometimes ships just get stranded and they can't sail out of the madness.

  • This happened in 2019 off the coast of Norway.

  • Massive 30-foot waves rocked the Viking Cruise ship and that led to engine failure.

  • The problem was, it was too dangerous to keep the people on the ship but it was also too

  • dangerous to send boats in to evacuate them.

  • Before that happened some waves were so big that they broke down doors of the cabins and

  • threw people across their rooms.

  • They were of course just a little concerned that the ship might go down.

  • The authorities were concerned, too, and so soon helicopters started arriving to airlift

  • people from the ship.

  • No one died on this occasion.

  • We'll get around to death soon.

  • 6.

  • Spying This one is just plain weird.

  • It happened on the Caribbean-headed Carnival Cruise ship in 2018.

  • A couple on that ship one night were in their cabin about to watch some TV.

  • Suddenly the man noticed something weird, something that looked like a small camera

  • pointing at them.

  • This camera was aimed at the bed.

  • The man went over to investigate and he later told a court that it was working and so someone

  • was likely watching them.

  • This company denied that the camera was turned on, but it did admit that there was a camera.

  • The couple said this was hogwash, and they said they could see clearly that the camera

  • was working.

  • The guy said it was warm when he touched it.

  • This one remains a bit of a mystery.

  • The camera was turned over to the FBI and we don't know what happened after that.

  • 5.

  • It's A Stick Up It wouldn't surprise you if we told you

  • that someone has stolen someone's belongings while on a cruise ship.

  • Hey, there are just some folks in this world that can't resist themselves when they see

  • a smartphone or a wallet lying around.

  • But in 2012, 22 Carnival Cruise passengers were robbed, which is quite out of the ordinary.

  • They were on an excursion at the Mexico seaside resort of Puerto Vallarta when it happened.

  • The robbery wasn't actually on the cruise ship; it happened when the people were taking

  • a bus back to the ship.

  • Some guys in the middle of the street didn't get out of the way and the bus had no choice

  • but to stop.

  • After that, the men - what the media calledbandits” - got on the bus holding guns

  • in their hands.

  • The shocked tourists were told to hand over everything of value.

  • That included their watches, jewelry, money, cameras, passports, and anything else that

  • was of any value.

  • The Mexican authorities said this was a “rareevent, but the cruise line later said that

  • this particular tour would now be suspended.

  • 4.

  • Falling Off So, you've probably heard that now and again

  • people fall off cruise ships, but what you might not know is that it happens quite often.

  • In 2016, a young woman on the Carnival Liberty had been in the bar and it turned out that

  • she had had the grand total of 19 drinks, which is a hell of a lot for someone who weighed

  • just 120 pounds (54kg).

  • The woman then went up to the deck at around 2 am and sat on a deckchair that was right

  • next to the railing of the ship.

  • She was never seen again.

  • Now, you probably think this is a very rare thing to happen, but do you know that from

  • the year 2000 to the year 2018, 284 people fell off cruise shipsand another 41 people

  • fell from large ferries.

  • That's quite a lot.

  • We found a few more recent cases of this happening, too, and the outcome is not usually good,

  • although sometimes people do get saved.

  • There have also been a few cases when people purposely jumped off a ship.

  • 3.

  • The Pirates of Somalia In 2005, a cruise ship traveling off the coast

  • of Somalia came under attack from pirates.

  • This must have been pretty scary for the passengers because when the pirates got close to the

  • ship they fired automatic weapons and rocket-propelled grenades.

  • There were only 302 passengers on the ship and most of them were from the U.S. and the

  • UK.

  • One American woman who was interviewed explained to the media what she witnessed.

  • She said, “My daughter saw the pirates out our window.

  • There were at least three RPGs that hit the ship, one in a stateroom four doors down from

  • our cabin.”

  • Yep, can you imagine that!

  • A British guy on the ship said he saw the pirates firing and he said that one of the

  • rockets from the rocket launchers went right through the liner and into a suite where some

  • people were staying.

  • Thankfully, the ship managed to keep the pirates away using a water hose and a long range acoustic

  • device.

  • None of the passengers were hurt during the ordeal, although one of the crew members was

  • injured.

  • This was quite an unusual thing to happen since cruise ships have so many people on

  • them.

  • Pirates tend to go for cargo ships where there is a lot of loot to be had and only a few

  • crew members.

  • 2.

  • A Modern Disaster You all know about the sinking of the Titanic,

  • but some of you might not have heard of the 2013 Costa Concordia disaster.

  • That ship was sailing with 3,229 passengers and 1,023 crew on January Friday the 13th

  • when it hit a rock.

  • A hole was torn in the hull and water started to get into the ship, meanwhile the gigantic

  • ship was turning on its side.

  • 32 passengers and crew died during the event, and after it happened the captain of the ship

  • was imprisoned on a charge of manslaughter.

  • He also abandoned ship to save his own life and so he became known asCaptain Coward.”

  • Some people say he was made a scapegoat for the disaster, although the coast guard captain

  • that shouted, “Get on board, dammit!” didn't think that was the case.

  • Titanic 2 One of the worst disasters that ever happened

  • on a passenger ship happened in 1914 and the ship was called RMS Empress of Ireland.

  • Those old passenger ships were not exactly cruise ships, but back then they were about

  • as close as you can get to a modern day cruise ship.

  • Passengers on board could float in the luxury of a first class suite or they could get the

  • much cheaper second and third class cabins.

  • While sailing through thick fog on the Saint Lawrence River in North America, the ship's

  • crew could barely see a thingand then suddenly BANG.

  • It was hit by the Norwegian collier SS Storstad in the early hours of the morning.

  • This disaster happened around two years after the Titanic went down and killed around 1,500

  • people, so the ship was equipped with ample lifeboats and had watertight compartments.

  • No one ever thought something like the Titanic disaster could ever happen again.

  • It actually took just 14 minutes for the ship to fill with water and sink, so there wasn't

  • much time to get people into those lifeboats.

  • Out of the 1,477 people on board the ship, 1,012 of them died.

  • It was Titanic, the sequel.

  • The disaster killed the rich and the poor and it took the lives of quite a few notable

  • people.

  • The survivors were all picked up while floating in the water, with only four children amongst

  • them.

  • 134 children in total died that fateful day.

  • One of the reasons that so many people died was because the impact was so sudden and just

  • about everyone was fast asleep at the time of the collison.

  • In the aftermath the Norwegians said the Empress of Ireland was at fault, but the captains

  • and crew on that ship said it was the Norwegian ship that had caused the crash.

  • One of the survivors who was one of those saved kids later said in interviews that she

  • remembered how beautiful the ship was, calling it a “floating hotel.”

  • She said she remembered how wonderfully the orchestra played.

  • One night she went to bed and was woken up by a bang.

  • Before she knew it, she was floating in the water holding on to some wreckage.

  • She was eventually saved, but lost both her parents.

  • Now we think you just have to watch this amazing video, “Where Did All The Bodies On Titanic

  • Disappear?”

  • Or watch, “50 Insane Facts About Titanic You Didn't Know.”

You've saved all year to take the vacation of a lifetime on a cruise ship.
