Urban Meyer back on land after fog delayed his cruise ship return by a day

Wednesday February 25th, 2015

The Royal Caribbean's Brilliance of the Seas is back in port along with its most famous passenger, Urban Meyer, after being stuck at sea for an extra day due to intense fog.

Meyer was on the ship as part of the Buckeye Cruise for Cancer, an annual fundraiser for the Urban & Shelly Meyer Fund and The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center.

The cruise was scheduled to end on Monday, but fog kept the boat circling in the Gulf of Mexico until early Tuesday evening, with the national championship coach telling The Columbus Dispatch that everything was fine onboard but the passengers were "ready to get home."

Royal Caribbean did manage to turn the delay into pretty solid joke on Twitter though.
