Craziest Cruise Ship Disasters In History

Going on a cruise ship is supposed to be relaxing and fun, right? Well, these cruise ship disasters prove that it’s not all calm out at sea. These are the most insane cruise ship disasters of all time.

Poseidon

Some people believe that the S.S. Poseidon, which is the main focus of the shipwreck tale The Poseidon Adventure, is one of the worst shipwrecks of all time. The film based on the story of the capsized ship was incredibly popular among many different audiences. But, there seems to be one problem. The S.S. Poseidon was a fictional ship, even though many people believe that the movie was based on real events.

Poseidon

The film itself conveys a story about a priest who leads a group of people to safety out of a capsized ship. The story is also one of the disaster cult classics out of the 1970s, which are an inspiration today for directors like Quentin Tarantino. Even though the S.S. Poseidon is a fake tale, this ship’s legacy lives on as one of the widest known disaster stories.
