Hurricane Michael's outer bands tossed a Royal Caribbean cruise ship around, jostling hundreds of cruisers in the Gulf of Mexico.

Empress of the Seas was caught up the roiling seas on October 8, just off the coast of Isla de la Juventud

Snapper Tams, who was onboard, tweeted a video of the vessel caught in stormy rains and high winds off Cuba. The video was taken at around 7:00-9:00 p.m. 

Hurricane Michael sprung up in southern Gulf of Mexico and is heading to a landfall on Wednesday, October 10 along Florida panhandle, possibly as major hurricane.
