    I've seen that video before, be pretty scary to be on. I believe I read one of the ballasts quit working causing it to rock around like that.

    lol!! If the ship had a casino, can you imagine the craps table and the dealer's futile attempts to keep the table in order....:beer::beer::thumbsup:

    Cruise ships

    I have been cruising for many years and never had a bad experience on a ship.
    I have cruised on THE LOVE BOAT for 18 times and I am an ELITE VIP MEMBER. I will be cruising again on Jan. 28, 2014.

    I have cruised 25 times on Carnival ships for many years and I think it is a fun ship. I am a VIP MEMBER.

    I have cruised on the NCL Ship 8 times and I still plan to cruise some more on NCL. I have a booked NCL ship for August 2014.

    I have cruised on Royal Carribean ships approx. 8 times.

    I have cruised on several other ship cruise lines like the Cunard, Sitmar, etc.

    In all the years I have cruised I have never had a bad experience. I do know that bad things happen on ships but I love the ocean a lot and love to go on cruise ships because I am addicted to cruising. LucyR.

    First time I cruised it was on an old P&O ship in the Med. It was on a ship that was nicknamed the "Ug-Tug" by the crew - because it was about the size of a tug (17,000 tonnes compared to about 100,000 for todays modern cruise ships). we hit a force 9 gale and nearly everyone was ill - I was on the first day but ok for the rest of it. no saying it was bad but they closed the prom deck as they didn't want people washed overboard!!

    By day 2 I was up and about - went to breakfast and there were only a couple of tables that had people on them. its the only time I've had to catch the salt and pepper to stop it sliding off the table.

    didn't stop me cruising though.


    on the video above it looks as if the ship had lost power - it wouldn't be thrown around like that otherwise! not fun.
