MIAMI (AP) — A Royal Caribbean cruise ship ran into high winds and rough seas in the Atlantic Ocean on Sunday, forcing frightened passengers into their cabins overnight as their belongings flew about, waves rose as high as 30 feet, and winds howled outside. The cruise line says that although no one was injured and the ship suffered only minor damage, it's turning around and sailing back to its home port in New Jersey.
Steep losses in financial, technology and other companies sent U.S. stocks sharply lower in afternoon trading Monday. The decline followed drops in Europe and set the market on course for its second big loss in a row. Crude oil prices slumped again.
