According to reports, P and O Cruises is trying to find charter flights for hundreds of passengers on a storm-damaged cruise liner stranded in Vanuatu.
The Pacific Star was battered by gale force winds and waves only hours after it left leaving Auckland.
The Pacific Star ran into a wild storm that damaged the ship's bow, as well as some windows, doors and satellite equipment.
Many of the 1,200 passengers on board were sea sick, some questioning why the cruise was not postponed.
The ship canceled a scheduled visit to New Caledonia and made instead for Port Vila from where P and O Cruises is now trying to arrange return flights for its shaken holiday makers who will all receive refunds.
