Hurricane Michael turned a Royal Caribbean cruise into a bumpy, rainy ride.

Passengers who were supposed to be enjoying themselves on the ship Empress of the Seas instead became seasick as the ship sailed just southwest of Isla de la Juventard, Cuba.

Snapper Tams, a passenger, posted video on Twitter showing the stormy seas, gusting winds and heavy rain.

Tams said the ship sat for a few hours as the storm passed through the Gulf of Mexico’s Yucatan Channel.

“Seas are still somewhat rough,” Tams told CNN. “Last night they were about 13-14’ swells.”

No injuries have been reported and the ship has since made its departure to Havana.
