A passenger aboard the Royal Caribbean's 'Empress of the Sea's' tweeted out a video of the cruise ship taking on the high winds and rain Monday morning.
Michael's forecasted winds of 145 mph pushed through Cuba and headed to Florida, as the ship traveled on the hurricane's outer ring. Wind whipped across the deck and lightning can be seen in the distance as the vessel headed toward Havana.
Tough time of year for cruises in that part of the world. Be Safe.
