What Happens to Cruise Ship Cabins That Don’t Get Sold? For any number of reasons, a cruise line may have cabins that they didn't sell. And, like airlines and hotels, they would rather get something than nothing. 

A cruise is supposed to be a week of rest, relaxation, and adventure, but for the people on the cruises on this list, it was a nightmare. For unknown reasons, the ship lost power in particularly dangerous waters off the Norwegian coast called Hustadvika.

“ Cruise ships , in large part operating outside the bounds of United States enforcement, have become the Wild West of the travel industry, and it’s time to rein them in before anyone else gets hurt ,” Schumer said. Moreover, thousands of ships have sailed the open ocean without incident this past year.

Two of those passengers were reportedly taken to the hospital. The collision occured on the Danube River between Romania and Ukraine, according to Vessel Tracker. The cargo ship, named Blue Star 1, had reportedly been traveling from Piraeus, Greece, to Galati, Romania.
