Default Rouge Wave Hits Cruise Ship

Anyone have any pictures of the monster wave that hit the cruise ship near Hawaii last week?

I saw some of the footage on AOL. Its not a huge ship, but big enough to have 4 engines, and three were damaged by the rough seas. The ship was towed/limped into Hawaii for repairs. The footage showed the passengers being slid around in the main deck 'ballroom', and furniture following behind them. It was one of those 'Semester at Sea' college excursions college students. As you can imagine, it destoyed the library, and most of the computer equipment on board.

semester at sea isn't for rich kids.... I went on a semester at sea "cruise" and it is nothing like what you think of about being on a cruise..... unless your idea of a cruise is getting up at 4:00am scrubbing the decks and cooking meals for others.... Semesters at sea the whold ship works, and goes to school. There aren't a lot of people onboard ie... small crew.... which means you have major chores.
