  1. I join thousand of viewers to thank ‘Wolfgang227″ for posting such an interesting and agonizing video. In my life time, I had the opportunity of enjoying the cruise in Caribbean sea for 4 nights and hence can imagine how enjoyable but more dangerous to undertake such a cruise.

  2. A big exaggeration! Waves max 4-5 m, wind no more than 50-60 knots. Moderately rough weather. Vessel is about 200 m long and manages this weather easy. Almost no rolling. This video is good only to impress wives and girlfriends (and may be passengers of cruise vessels :-)).

  3. Been crossing the North Pacific Ocean between US including Alaska, Canada and Japan in one newly built 5 holds log ship for a straight 21 months. The good thing with that type of vessel is that it plays well in stormy weather with a stable metacentric height.
