When Del Ross and his family boarded the Norwegian Breakaway for a two-week voyage to NY, they never envisioned the horror they would endure as last week's "bomb cyclone" battered America's northeast.

Brenda Walsh-Matias booked a Norwegian cruise from NY to the Bahamas, hoping for a relaxing getaway to start the new year. "It was so tilted I was shaking".

At long last on Friday the ship made it to NY, however a significant number of the travelers need answers.

"The ship's captain adjusted the ship's speed and itinerary accordingly to maintain the safest possible route, delaying the ship's arrival", said the cruise line in a statement. "Individuals had life vests on", said traveler Karoline Ross.

'There were people crying, everyone was throwing up.it was a nightmare, ' said Olivia Ross.

"I thought I'd never be in a situation where I would say that's the scariest moment of my life, but this was the worst moment of my life".

In another post on Twitter, water can be seen dripping near the stairwells on deck 6 as housekeeping staff is hard at work trying to limit the damage.

A Norwegian Cruise Line carrying 4,000 passengers on their way back to NY from the Bahamas ran smack into the storm at sea, and the experience was anything but a vacation.

Fellow passenger Emma Franzese told CBS New York once the ship docked: "I'm completely traumatized".

The Breakaway's late arrival to NY delayed a 14-day cruise, and the company says those guests will receive a refund for the lost day. A second statement did acknowledge the distress of sailing through the storm. "That's how I felt that night", Elizabeth Vogt said, but added that the crew "put on a really happy face" throughout the ordeal.

The cruise line has apologised to passengers following the journey.

"We sincerely apologise to our guests for these stronger than expected weather conditions and any resulting discomfort they may have experienced".
