Oasis of the Seas delayed by rough weather (CAPTAIN’S VIDEO)

(FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.) — The arrival of Oasis of the Seas in Florida has been delayed because the world’s largest cruise ship has encountered near-hurricane-force weather in the North Atlantic, USA Today reported on its Cruise Log blog. In a video, the captain says waves are as high as 40 feet, and he has had to heave to. The ship is now scheduled to arrive at Fort Lauderdale on Nov. 13 instead of Nov. 11.
