Western Europe has been seeing some rough winter weather this season. A cruise ship, which had just crossed the Atlantic after a 42-day voyage to South America, met its worst on Friday within a day’s sail from home when a rogue wave struck it abeam on the outer reaches of the English Channel, blasting through a man’s cabin window and killing him (he was pronounced dead after being airlifted and brought to shore). Several more were injured.
