Rough seas prevent cruise, cargo ships from docking

TAMPA BAY, FL (WFLX) - A four-day cruise turns into a five-day nightmare for some passengers off the Florida coast.

High winds and rough seas kept the cruise ship and six cargo ships from getting into Tampa Bay.

The U.S. Coast Guard said Monday, the Carnival Inspiration and the cargo vessels, are being hindered by 10 to 15 foot swells.

The Inspiration, which was due back Monday morning, finally docked overnight. All on board were safe and unharmed.
