We sailed Eurodam in March ... I believe she is about 70,000 tonnes; about half of FOTS. The seas were especially stormy that week, and I, for the first time in my cruising life, became seassick

Just got off FOTS on the heals of Irene. We had a forward cabin, so I was worried. The ship was incredibly stable. I did not feel any movement on the last day. I find that on the last day, the captians are trying to make up lost ground and the ship always seems to be moving faster on that last night. I felt some movement on the last night, but nothing a little gravol didn't quell.

The one thing I did find with FOTS was that the "Vibration" of the ship was really strong. There were some parts of the ship (like the kid's club - deck 12 aft) where the vibration was really strong. I'm not sure why you would feel the vibration so high up?
