Cruise ship in distress near Antarctica

BUENOS AIRES (WFLX) - A U.S. operated cruise ship lost its engine in high seas on a trip to Antarctica. Massive waves lashed the ship tossing it all around in the frigid water.

There are 160 people aboard, and all are said to be safe.

The ship is limping back to port in Argentina with the help of a Navy Vessel, and it should be able to dock late Wednesday.
