Well, we feel better now...

As I related in my lengthy, mostly-photo post about our Mexican Riviera cruise, the trip home was a bit bouncy. Waves were hitting 17 feet, making it a bit of a challenge to walk steadily. I think we all knew it could have been much worse.

Much, much worse.

The ship, carrying more than 4,500 passengers and 1,600 crew members, departed Saturday on a seven-day cruise to the Bahamas. But the 1,141-foot vessel sailed on Sunday into a major winter storm.
The captain asked passengers to stay in their cabins as powerful 120-mph sustained winds and waves as high as 30 feet tossed the vessel around beginning Sunday afternoon.
And of course, a congresscritter is calling for a government investigation...
