10-2007 Hundreds of New Zealanders on a "holiday from hell" have
been forced to wait for flights out of Vanuatu because their
storm-damaged cruise ship will not return to Auckland.
The 1200 passengers on P&O's Pacific Star are still in Vila, after the liner sailed through gale-force winds and swells of up to 10m shortly after leaving Auckland on Tuesday.
During the storm 50-knot winds, with gusts up to 70 knots, damaged the ship's bow and some of its windows and external doors, as well as satellite equipment.
