P&O Cruises Pacific Star Battered By Cyclone Funa, Passengers Say Ship Entered Cyclone's Path

P&O Cruises Pacific Star met with Cyclone Funa as it was churning the seas, between Australia and Vanuatu, resulting in damage to the ship and terrified passengers.

Passengers reported some cabins were flooding, seated passengers were tossed from their chairs, appliance were flying about, the kitchen tableware was smashed, bar ware was smashed and passengers were bruised and battered.

The ship was caught in the worst of the storm on Sunday January 20th, arriving a day late to port.
