Royal Caribbean cruise ship battered in eastern Mediterranean

A passenger aboard the Brilliance of the Seas shared her images with NBC News amid travelers' reports of being violently tossed out of bed at night, waves crashing over the bow, bloody injuries, damage to rooms and shops and no electricity. A Royal Caribbean statement says the ship has full power and is sailing as normal. Much of the Middle East is being pummeled with heavy wind, rain and snow. You can see images of those storms here.
