You Get What You Deserve

Ice strands Canadian cruise ship for 30-plus hours

TORONTO – A cruise ship carrying 300 passengers that became lodged in thick ice in the St. Lawrence River for more than 30 hours was freed Tuesday with the help of an ice breaking vessel, officials said.

“Because it was so cold and windy, the wind blew ice from Montreal down into the St. Lawrence River at high speeds and it became very thick, which is why the ship became stuck there for so long,” Arsenault said.

Arsenault said there were no injuries.

Gray said the cruise ship got stuck about five miles from Montreal.

“All of a sudden, there was this loud, grinding noise and we knew we were really in a fix,” he said.

That’s what you get for booking A CRUISE in the MIDDLE OF WINTER IN CANADA!!!!
