HOUSTON – A popular cruise line is being sued after passengers said they were forced to fly to Houston at the height of Hurricane Harvey.

The class-action lawsuit claims that Royal Caribbean refused to make changes to tickets before the storm, and told passengers that they would not get a refund if they didn't board the ship.

Ultimately, the cruise was delayed and then canceled, leaving passengers stranded because of floodwaters.
