Cruise Ship Accident Injures Dozens

Dozens of passengers aboard a brand new cruise ship are nursing their wounds after the boat took a violent detour Tuesday off the Florida Coast. Officials say a steering problem on the Crown Princess caused the ship to roll to one side.

Passengers on this ship said it leaned so much to one side that depending on where you were standing, you either saw water below you or high above you.

One man says that a glass table pinned him against the wall, and he wasn't even one of the 50 or so seriously injured, but before the ship could come back to port it had to be checked by the Coast Guard and was then accompanied to Port Canaveral.

The cruise has been cancelled and is now being investigated by federal authorities to figure out how this could have happened. We were told that all the passengers will be reimbursed.
