I understand that this also has something to do with the depth of the water channel for which the ship travels.
For instance, in August, when we left Cozemel heading back to Tampa, for the first tow hours we were rocking and rolling. We had virtually calm water all the days prior.
We were told by a white suited ship worker that the channel the ship travels in that actually runs between Cozemel and Playa Del Carmen is very narrow and so much so that the stabilizers whic spead out about 25 feet, could not be deployed. The capt. her 'er "kick up a notch" to get her to deeper water.
Thats what we were told anyway. After about two hours, we were smooth again.
