The Cruise Ship That Went All Slippy Slidey Tilty Comes Home

DSC_3525

Gowanus Lounge doesn't want to know what it's like when a cruise ship this big tilts 15 degrees to one side or contemplate the gravitational and buoyancy forces that keep it from tilting even more. In any case, the Princess will be making port in Red Hook tomorrow (Saturday) and is supposed to set sail again in the afternoon, assuming no problems are found. (The focus of the investigation is "human error," as in, "Woah, Ted, don't touch the red button. You pushed the red button? Woah!") Passengers that don't have the stomach for it are being offered refunds. (Why are people referring to this as the "Red Hook Cruise Ship" as though the Hook owns it?) On other fronts, Poseidon will be out on DVD on August 22, but the craftier among you moviegoers have already downloaded it bought the bootleg in Chinatown seen it at the cinema. The image above is the Princess as seen from the water, when it was at the Red Hook Cruise Terminal on July 2.
