Default Rough seas!

Tell us about the roughest waters you ran into when cruising?

I think the roughest waves I have been in were about 12 feet waves. That is according to the reports on the incabin TV. How about you?

It was the Conquest. It was during the Christmas season. The waves were so high, they were soaking us on the balcony. One of our ports was closed. Lots of sick people, all of us staggered around the ship.

I actually thought it was fun.

I don't mind a little rough seas. Do you know how big the waves were?

The roughest seas we have ever had were in May 2003, on a repositioning cruise from San Diego to Vancouver. The captain said they were almost 20 feet. We didn't even have that on the way to Hawaii.
They didn't put any water in the atrium fountain because it just sloshed out !!

I have no idea how high the seas were, but I can remember dancing with my wife only to discover that the floor had moved as I went to put my foot down.

The good news - we blamed all of our dancing mistakes on the boat rocking.

Good times.

See, This is one of those times when you can either make the most of it, or complain the whole time. We had high seas, and were not really able to use the balcony, because of the spray coming from the waves, but we had so much fun trying to stay in the bed. We also duct taped the drawers shut, so they wouldn't open and close.

The biggest waves were the second night in heading through the Gulf of Mexico to Costa Maya. The waves were 10-12 feet and getting dressed for formal night wasn't easy standing up, so we had to sit on the bed to get dressed it was rolling so much. I had the Pacific dfining room at the back of the ship and it was an interesting dining experience. The pools all had a fair bit of water sloshing out of them.

I also had a similar experience in 1991 when going through the Gulf to Cozumel. The waves were making the shop pitch and roll quite a bit and it made everyone look like they were drunk when they walked becase everyone was drifting to the right when it rolled to the right and then left when it rolled left...

Did you know that when the ship is like this, you are able to walk straighter by being drunk, than if you are sober?

Hi Lou,

The roughest seas we experienced were on the Elation. We were coming back into Port of Galveston and it got rough on December 25th 2004. The weather service later reported the winds were around 35 knots and the waves peaked at 20 feet out in the Gulf. I noticed you are from Iowa, so it wouldn't be any big deal to you, but for those of us that live in the Houston/Galveston area it was an historic time. Galveston had snow that was actually sticking! It got so rough, they closed some of the decks on the ship to keep people safe. The crew had been having some private
Christmas parties on the night of the 24th. The seas were so rough that many of them did not report to work on the 25th. I loved the rocking feeling it did not bother me at all. But my husband and son could not walk to the front or back of the ship without feeling queasy. They were okay, I think they just went back to the cabin. However, there were lots of people on board that did not like it. If I remember right the seas calmed down late on December 25th. We arrived back in port on the 26th.
The roofs of the buildings around the port still had snow as did some of the palm trees. A strange sight in Galveston! Some of the crew had never seen snow so it was great for them also. :o

The other memorable time for "rough seas" for me was many years ago
when DH and I spent a week SCUBA diving in Cozumel. It was a drift dive
where our group was dropped off at the reef and then the boat would pick us up in 40 minutes or so. Anyway, about 10 minutes into the dive, my regulator began to malfunction. We could see the boat which was 65 feet
above us. I surfaced and my DH continued on with our group. When I surfaced the seas were rough-- about 6 feet and it was stormy! The clouds were boiling. I signaled to the boat, but found out it was not the boat we were on. I didn't speak Spanish and they didn't speak English. Anyway they left the area and I was left in the ocean surrounded by rolling seas and a storm moving in. Then the lightening started. I didn't know whether I should be more worried about what might be swimming below the water or getting struck by lightening! Anyway, about an hour and half later, "my boat" comes to pick me up. My husband had got back on and was very concerned that I was not onboard. He explained what had happened, and they found me. Anyway, it all turned out okay. But those seas were very rough for me that day. It was a small boat and on the ride back to the dive shop, there were several divers that got very sick. I just kept thinking if I had not had been with my husband, I could have been left out there. Things have changed dramatically since those days. On most tours now, they count and recount to make sure everyone is back on board.

I guess I can handle the rough seas as long as I am on the boat/ship!

Happy Cruising Everyone,

Sherrie

I did not see anybody sick; although they might have been in the cabin sicker than a dog.

Actually, the Golden took in very well. I really did not notice any serious pitching or rolling. A few waves hit the ship that cause a little more roll than I have experienced in rough seas.

What was more scarry to many passengers was when a wave would hit the hull with a big THUD. That seemed to get some folk's attention.

The camera on the pool deck showed the water in the pool sloshing over the sides of the pool. It was empty in a short time! The TV went out for a while.

When we went on the Disney Wonder in 1999 we had 20 ft seas. It was a lot of fun. Everyone looked like they had to much to drink when they tryed to walk and when you layed in bed, you would slide around.

Haven't had anything bigger than 10 ft since, but I am always hopefull that the next cruise will have at least 1 night of high seas. It would get old if the whole cruise was rough though.

Thanks for responding and I am sure they don't get snow often in Galveston..

I would like to be on rough seas just once. I might change my mind in a hurry but it would be interesting to experience.

We loved it. None of us are quick to get sea sick, so it didn't bother us in that way.

For those Newbie's to cruising who might be reading this. If you do feel a bit sea sick there are all kinds of things you can take, and the key is to not stay in your cabin, but get out on deck, where you can get fresh air.

Don't they also say to keep food in your stomach? I always did just in case the seas got rough.

Question:

If the seas DO get a little rough and you're starting to feel a little sick, where is the best spot to go on the boat to minimize the back and forth motion?

Lido deck. It is open air, lots of stuff going on, to take your mind away from the way you feel.

One thing to add to Luanne's comment. When on the Lido deck try to be in the middle area. Should be a little less movement there.
