Been there, Done that.

We left Nassau about 6 hours before a hurricane hit there. Capt. put the hammer down to outrun it but we were still in 20' to 30' seas heading back to Port Canaveral. Kids thought it was great. The Wife wasn't as impressed.

I have photos of when my mother crossed the Atlantic in 1958 from NY to England. She was going over to run a PX in Germany. 10 straight days of 30-40 foot seas. the Queen Mary left 1 day a head of them. The berth in port was next to her. She was amazed at how many port holes on the QE had been blown in. One thing she will never forget was the sound of the screws when the water dropped off the stern

If you didnt know it was a ship at sea (fixed camera), you'd think the place was haunted!

Took a 7 day cruise for our honeymoon from Miami to Mexico, Caymans and Jamaica. Perfect weather until the last night back to Miami. We were bashing though 20-30' seas. The ship was rocking side to side so bad you couldn't walk through the hallways without bouncing from wall to wall.

We had a balcony cabin pretty high up and the spray from the ship smashing the waves was blowing higher than the balcony. You could feel the entire ship rumble as it hit the waves. The buffets tipped over, the pool deck chairs were sliding all over the deck, people were puking left and right.

I was right at home, it was cool.

Wow, powerful seas. I have been in that twice, once in Med, once in Carribean. TV and drawers in the room were sliding in and out as the boat rocked. Sounds and spray were similar as described above.

yep the same thing happened to me and my wife, felt like a pin ball in a machine. the best part was hearing all the people cussing up a storm about being sea sick and that they would never go on another cruise again. my wife and i never get sea sick we had a blast watching all the other people.
