The impact of massive waves that struck a cruise ship during a storm off New Zealand have been revealed by CCTV footage posted on the internet.

Pacific Sun Cruise liner, carrying 1732 passengers and 671 crew, was caught in a severe storm back on July 30, 2008, encountering seven-metre swells and 50 knot winds. Yeah, that was over 2 years ago, but we’re just getting access to the video and regardless of the time, it’s pretty dramatic and worth seeing.

Passengers who were aboard the journey were offered a 25% reduction in the cost of a future cruise.

After watching the video you tell me – was the 25% enough ?
