A viral video has appeared online showing a cruise ship battling brutal waves in the Caribbean. 

The area is usually known for lush weather but it does have a stormy season that can ravage the usually paradisiacal landscape.

Huge waves up to 30 feet high rage against the side of the ship.

The short film shows various scenes of a violent storm that is blowing a gale outside the ship.

Another excerpt from the video is filmed in a lobby where it is possible to hear the wind outside.

The harsh weather is creating whistling sounds as the Norwegian Breakaway cruise ship moves through the fast winds.

The video was filmed on a mobile phone and uploaded to Twitter by a woman named Christina Mendez. 

At one point in the video she tells viewers: “This is not a movie, this is really our view.”

Christina Ross was one of a group who were travelling back from the Caribbean to New York.

They had been on the trip for an 80th birthday celebration.

She told WCBV5: “I thought I’d never be in a situation where I would say that’s the scariest moment of my life. This was the worst moment of my life.”

The 4,000 passengr ship sailed into the storm during the night and were caught in the fray for two days.

“All guests and crew are safe. We sincerely apologize to our guests for these stronger than expected weather conditions and any resulting discomfort they may have experienced.”

Another viral video that emerged recently shows the terrifying moment a passenger on a cruise ship is thrown into the sea.
