Default Ship Listing???

I am a first time cruiser set for the Feb 18 sailing of the Grand out of Galveston. A poster on the Princess forum posting from the Grand said that they were listing severely last night, resulting in several injuries and a return to Galveston. He said that in 20 years of cruising this is the first time he was scared.

Now I am freaked out! Is this kind of thing common? Does it mean there is something seriously wrong with the ship? I didn't think cruises could be considered "dangerous". Any insight?

I would not be overly worried. What the poster described was a hard turn to starboard. This was done for a medical emergency and not a common occurrence. Large vessels do not turn on a dime and yes you are on the water and on a ship that moves.

I have been on numerous cruises and have never had an issue with any hard turns and you'll probably never have any either. Just remember you are on a ship and not on a Hilton. That's part of the fun.

Take care,
