Ashleigh Banfield Interviews Her Mom About Hurricane-Affected Cruise Ship Journey

CNN anchor Ashleigh Banfield interviewed her mother during “CNN Newsroom” today. Banfield’s mother was on a cruise ship that diverted due to Hurricane Sandy, taking a very similar path to the ill-fated tall ship HMS Bounty, which sank, killing at least one crew member.

The cruise ship eventually made it to Bermuda, after enduring 20 to 30 foot waves. Banfield hadn’t spoken to her mother until she heard her voice on-air.

“I’ll talk to you after the show, I love you,” Banfied said.
