It was a nightmare of a cruise that left some passengers afraid they might not make it home alive.

A Royal Caribbean ship that sailed into hurricane force winds is now docked and many of the passengers from metro Detroit are now back home.

7 Action News caught up with a handful of the passengers as they got their bags at Detroit Metro Airport after arriving from Newark. That's where the ship originated from and returned to after enduring 120 mph winds.

The ship was headed to Florida but quickly turned back around after the storm.
