BALTIMORE (WJZ)- A Carnival Pride ship bound for Baltimore was at sea as Tropical Storm Hermine spun up the Atlantic.
Ruby Singleton Blakeney was aboard the ship during the storm and says the trip was anything but relaxing.
“It really looked like the waves were up to where we were and I was up on the 7th deck,” said Blakeney, who is an Annapolis native. “The waters were just so rough and it was coming inside of the door.”
Blakeney is back home now, but tells WJZ says she doubts she’ll ever travel on Carnival again.
“We got our life vests and just prepared for the worse,” she said.
After analyzing the weather, Carnival decided to bring the Pride back to its homeport in Baltimore.
In a statement to WJZ, the company says, “We can fully appreciate the larger than normal waves and wind may have concerned your viewer. All guest were delivered safe and sound back to Baltimore and were not in danger at any point in time.”
The Baltimore-Bahamas itinerary is a popular one and it’s not the only cruise Hermine interrupted.

Carnival Pride, who has a capacity of 2,100 people, says it checked out the ship to make sure it was okay and after disembarking.
No one was injured during the cruise, officials say.
