Bridgewater Couple Prayed Like Hell to Survive Rocky Norwegian Cruise

A couple from Bridgewater had been aboard the cruise ship of Viking Sky which was caught in a bomb cyclone in Norway’s western coast over the weekend. Pamela Haddad had been afraid that he wasn’t going to make it off the cruise. Waves were pounding on the boat side. The chairs and tables were sliding across the dining room.
