Default Carnival Legend Tipping on one side Help!!!!!

Hi My husband and I are going on the Legend December 3-11-05. Please let us know how she tipped to one side. I hope ths will not happen when we are on her. But so happy there was noone badly hurt. I went on Victory with my Daughter last May and only had 1 day of bad seas. But Captain raced her and we arrived in Puerto Rico 2 hours earlier than posted. The Victory is a Beautiful ship and we had a Great time; Food great,service and entertainment Great. That's why I talked Husband into going on Carnival. Thank You to All who can help me on why this tipping occurred on Legend. Bee

Freak computer problems. I'm sure they repaired/replaced the part the second they got back to NYC. Major problems exceptionally rare. You may well find minor ones....since the sea is "in charge". Not the ship.

It was because all the fat people went over to one side to see the dolphins. Seriously,

I have researched this, and it does not happen very often. You will be safe, because it is in the best interest of all. They do not take these ships out, in order for anyone to get hurt. Go with a good peace of mind, and you will be fine.

We were told that the "big tip" was a computer glitch and that the problem was corrected and would not happen again. That was some glitch! The ship was listing for about 90 seconds, but it did a lot of damage in the gift shops. Glass flew everywhere. The pool emptied water out into the Lido Dining area. I'm sure you will be safe when you take your cruise. I've been on many cruises and this is the first time I've ever experienced anything like this.

Hey ... ...this was a test , if you were in the casino to see if any of those quarters fell that you can't help but put a quarter into as you are passing it, The one machine that shows all the quarters and if you put JUST ONE MORE they will all fall. o.k.

The computer glitch probably had something to do with the stabilisers. It would be similar to putting your hand out of the window of a moving car and tilting it either up or down.

It just dragged one side of the ship down.

Course that is just a guess, but I could see it.

Cheers,
Peter

Consider driving on the interstate and being passed by a tractor trailer, just for a moment there is a gust or surge of wind that pushes against your car until you compensate or the truck passes.

Similar, onboard ship, when a firm steady wind is encountered when passing or entering a new weather pattern, for a brief moment there are "invisible" forces (wind) pressing on that hugh, flat 1,000 foot long, 12 stories high side of the ship - and it tilts or "lists" away from the side the wind is coming from, until there is either a course change (ship or wind) or someother form of compensation.

If the wind gust come directly head-on you wouldn't notice anything since the ship's design permitts it to "cut" through the wind just as it does through the water.

"Computer glitch" - maybe, or just a slow response time as the stablizers attempt to compensate for 88,000 tons receiving a sudden push. However, good ol' fashioned wind is a powerful force. Consider sailboats used this very force in a controled manner to sail the 7 seas for thousands of years to the present! Hope this helped.

Enjoy,
Willy
