For most, the notion of a bad time on a luxurious vacation aboard a cruise ship is eating some rotten shellfish at a local port. For the unlucky passengers aboard the British cruise ship Balmoral, their 10 days of basking in the lap of luxury went awry when the cruise ship encountered 50 ft. seas and 60 mph gale force nine winds. The Balmoral encountered the rough seas when attempting to transit the Bay of Biscay during a storm. According to reports, two passengers had to be taken to a hospital in Spain with broken bones.

UPDATE: gCaptain commenter “opaco” was kind enough to point us to some more photos and even video of the Balmoral in rough seas. You can find them at funkoffizier.wordpress.com.
