The Clelia II cruise ship was in the Drake Passage in the Antarctic when it was was hit by a 30 foot wave, which knocked out one of the ship's engines, disabled the ship's communication system and shattered windows, stranding the 160 passengers on-board, according to CBS News.

Luckily, a National Geographic ship came to its aid and both are now making their way back to its port in Argentina.

None of the passengers were harmed.
