I think I'm going to get seasick
Only time I ever thought I was goingto get sick was on a cruise.
(Has this video been posted yet?)
If so let me know and I'll remove it.)

Looks like a wild roller coaster ride.

That's a good video...

I know that those are bad conditions all around but it looks to me the seas are coming mostly very close to the beam. Am I seeing right?
Anyway I never liked those ships "to tender for my taste" I rather seeing it spring right back (regardless of confort).
Does anyone here knows what the "g" (height of center of gravity) is on one of those? I know..... it depends on the state of "cargo" but,.. range?
It really doesn't matter how big you are; in the midle of the ocean we're all tiny.

That would be a great time to hit the buffet, probably not too crowded.

I assume that was some sort of test or drill with no passengers(?). Find it hard to believe a modern cruise liner would be surprised by a cyclone. Google gives 581,000 links to the video, but not much info.

V thats very good, they're out one way or another! As long as the 24 hour ice cream bar is working, I'm cool with it.:D

They suffered engine failure, hence the beam seas. The extra long rolls to starboard was from windage on that floating brick.

Is this the cruise boat that all the students were on in the bearing sea?
I watched a show on the the weather channel about it a couple of weeks ago.

And yes, My name is Matt and Im a weather channel junkie.

A common affliction among sailors, there is no cure, the only treatment is to hoist the main:)
