Hurricane Sandy Buffets Cruise Ships

Hurricane Sandy, which is stirring up waves as large as 32 feet high according to buoy readings, is also giving a wild ride to passengers on at least five cruise ships.

Captain Vito Giacalone of Carnival Cruise Lines told ABC News via telephone that the storm is getting intense.

"We are navigating through some serious weather, but we're not experiencing any issues. The vessel is very capable," he said.

The five cruise ships in the waters that Sandy is churning today are the Aiduluna, the Carnival Miracle, Explorer of the Seas, the Norwegian Jewel and the Queen Mary 2, which is heading to the United Kingdom.

Daniel Gonzales disembarked from the Disney Dream on Sunday, saying everyone on the ship was getting sick from the waves.

"The ship was going back and forth. It was really scary," said Gonzales.

Cruise ships now out in the waters are being forced to re-route and attempt to ride out the storm throughout the week, and cruise companies are delaying departures and arrivals, and have even cancelled trips.
