Video of Cruise Ship Hitting an Iceberg Is Giving People 'Titanic' Vibes

Anyone who loves history and has read about or seen the movie, Titanic, will tell you that what those passengers went through in 1912 is pretty unimaginable. It only took a couple of hours for the "unsinkable" ship to disappear under the waters of the North Atlantic, but the vessel left a mark on history that will never be forgotten. And even though technology for detecting icebergs is much more state-of-the-art nowadays, ships that venture into chilly waters still need to make it a point to avoid them.

However, sometimes, apparently they come out of nowhere. In a video that was shared on TikTok by @abcnews, you'll see a cruise ship that recently struck an iceberg near Alaska. Needless to say, people are getting major Titanic vibes from the clip. Check it out.

OMG! Apparently the Norwegian Sun cruise ship hit this iceberg just last week. Thankfully, no one was hurt and the ship is fine, but the comments on the video are pretty priceless. One TikTok user, @moonrocketfinance couldn't help but repeat the famous movie line, "I'll never let go, Jack." And while a ship striking an iceberg at any point in time is nothing to laugh at, we're not surprised that movie references were the first thing to come to people's minds.

But surprisingly, the reactions of people who were on the boat are completely opposite from what you might expect. Some commenters on the clip are suspicious about all how mundane everyone in the video is acting. Like user @captainkrystina, who said, "Everybody is WAY TOO CHILL RIGHT NOW." No one seems scared of the impending iceberg! Whether it's because cruise ships are way more capable and advanced nowadays or the passengers weren't quite sure what was happening, it might be best to just stick to Caribbean cruises from here on out.
