I have seen this before......I read somewhere ( in a message board) that this was a fake pic. (( ?? not sure if that is true though )) I also read in a different thread that the carpets on the Triumph have been replaced ( I believe that was this last FEB) .

I don't care either way ......as long as she floats....I am GOING!!
I don't care about water stained carpets ......just give me that Fun Ship Special
drink in that plastic glass with the little umbrella.....
and I can hang off the Aft deck and watch the wake.

Fake photo and not worth it. Don't know why I didn't just delete this whole thing but ...well, other than being completely wrong it doesn't actually violate the TOS <VBG>

I sailed the Triumph on May 29 (Western Carribean) and the ship is not dirty. The ship is beautiful and they are always seen cleaning the ship. I had 7 days of great fun and would sail Triumph again.

It's not a fake photo...these ships head out to sea when a storm is coming and I've been on a few cruises where the water washed over the bow. The bad part isn't the pitching...it's when it pitches and rolls that you'll get really uncomfortable. It's at those times you're wondering if the captain's trying to save fuel by not using the stabalizers, if there actually are stabalizers and if they're working!

Here's a story from someone who was on the Inspiration. Part of what she says:
Mary getting ready to board the Inspiration -- a 70,000 ton ship,
700 feet long x 100 feet wide with 2500 passengers and 900 employees

Inspiration? Definitely the name of a ship we were on. As I retell stories from our Mother/Daughter cruise to clients and friends, someone always asks about the weather. I mention 40-50 foot waves and 75 mph winds hitting my cabin window for 24 hours

The big problem with stabilizers is speed. It takes a knot off the speed and so if youre trying to outrun the hurricane it might waste precious time

The reason its fake is because of the lack of white-capping around the ship.

Swells don't get that big unless there is terrific white-capping all over the sea. The sea around the ship is realtively free of any white-capping.

Many ships that would lurch that deeply into a huge swell as is represented in this photo would simply never come up again.

My son, the "computer expert" analyzed this picture. He enlarged it to check for lines, and said about 1/3 of the way down, there is a possible "line" and around the front of the ship by the wave is another possible "line" as to where they could have cropped together this picture. He believes, it could be a real picture, as waves would be this large between the swells, but wouldn't commit as to if the picture is a "real" or a "fake". Just his opinion, if anyone was interested.

Hope I never get to see waves this BIG, just want to see the nice calm FLAT sea!

Happy Cruising to all!

no offense georgie, but the Inspiration isnt 700 ft. long. . Its 855 ft. long.
This picture might not be real because if you look in the Photo Gallery, some1 sailed on the date shown, and they seemed 2 have calm seas. Just sayin that, but it could be real. If it's not, that's one good computer person!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Branflakes, maybe the person writing the article made an error on the length of the ship...I just posted the passenger's review. You can go to the link and read the review, the person could be lying and never even went on a cruise for all I know, but the review is there. You're not offending me, I didn't write the review. Don't shoot the messenger!

You can also go to this site to see more pictures:
http://www.encyclopedia-titanica.org...tml?1081013023


I have no reason to believe this photo is a fake because I've been in bad storms on big ships and I know the water can wash over the bow. 40-50 ft. waves are nothing in the middle of an ocean in a storm.

I just want to know how the picture was taken?

And, okay, how sick is this....I think it would be kinda cool to be in a storm like that...this written by someone who 1) has a cast iron stomach 2) is fascinated by dramatic weather.

I doubt that the ship spent a full day in this type of weather. Being from the tropics, I know that blue skies are never very far away.

Supposedly, pebbs, the picture was taken by the United States Coast Guard. But after doing some research and remembering the Itinerary of the Triumph. I kinda find this hard to believe in fact almost impossible. Unless someone can give me the exact location of the ship in this particular picture... If I'm remembering right, and finding correct information. The Carnival Triumph was sailing out of Miami in 2003. I was on the Triumph in April of 2003 (out of Miami). And well if this picture is true, it would mean that the ship was further north,,, (towards New York,, and along the East Coast further) because the location of Hurricane Isabel was up towards those states more. On Tuesday, September 16 Carnival Triumph was in St. Thomas USVI. Which means On Wednesday, September 17, 2003. Carnival Triumph would have been in St. Maarten. But, funny... the date shown on the picture at this website address...

http://web.ask.com/redir?bpg=http%3a...h%2f&qte=0&o=0

pretty sure that picture says exactly this : Carnival Triumph sailing around Hurricane Isabel
Picture taken from U.S. Coast Guard helicopter - 17 Sep 2003


Shall I explain in less or perhaps easier details?... okay here :::


Date on this so called picture of the Carnival Triumph in Hurricane Isabel (at sea) : Sept 17, 2003

Carnival Triumph's Schedule/Itinerary in 2003 (september 13-20) :

Sat 13 - Miami
Sun 14- At Sea
Mon 15- San Juan
Tue 16- St. Thomas/St. John
WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 17- ST. MAARTEN
Thurs. 18- At Sea
Fri 19 - At Sea
Sat 20- Miami

The picture supposedly was taken on September 17, 2003 and looking as if the ship was at sea. When Really the Triumph was docked in St. Maarten. Also, on September 17, 2003 Hurricane Isabel was heading towards the Carolina's--Virginia-- and Maryland.

Now, Correct me if I'm wrong. And I apologize for my stupidity. thank you.
