A Treasure Valley couple was headed home Wednesday after being stranded in Texas during Hurricane Harvey.

The couple set out on Saturday for a Royal Caribbean Cruise.

The cruise liner hadn't yet canceled their trip and they were afraid of wasting the money they had spent on the vacation by not going, so they took a chance and ended up getting stuck on Galveston Island for days. 

"This Kuna boy was not ready for that," said Jeff Wills. 

"That was a whole different experience," said Mali McCracken. "It was like a sheet of sideways rain. It was absolutely insane to see."

The couple said they will be happy once they are home. They said if they had to go through it again, they wouldn't have got on their flight.
