Cruise Ship in Galveston Port After Dodging Tornado

In New Orleans, unsuspecting guests aboard the 48,000-ton Seven Seas Mariner cruise ship sailing down the Mississippi River got quite the sight on Tuesday when a tornado crossed right in front of the ship’s path.

The cruise goers who got a front row view of the twister are on a 25-day excursion that left Miami on March 16 and will visit cities along the Gulf Coast and the Caribbean before arriving back in Miami.

Video captured from nearby boats show the cruise ship only minutes away from the tornado.

The vessel was in the Port of Galveston from March 23 to March 24 before making way toward Progreso, Mexico
