WOW that is some incredible footage.

I don't know all my cruise line markings. Do you know which cruise line this was? They said it was in the Med. Sea.

Note to self: this footage is just a reminder of Who is really in control....

It is one of those cut rate cruise lines that are too cheap to install stabilizers on their ships.

I was more impressed with the people in the helicopter.

This is what happens when you take a cruise during hurricane season. The prices are cheaper for a reason.

It looks to be the Olympic Voyager, Greek owned that does 7 days cruises in the Med. It is only 24,000 tons carrys 800 passenger making it only 1/4 the size of the major lines modern ships. The text near the video say the fastest cruise ship but the web site for this line says fastest at the time it was built. Listed at 28 knots and most of the 110,000 ton ships can do that now also. (post later that same day: Top speed of 28 may be a stretch but the Norway could make turns for 35knots before it was modifed. But I could be wrong about say the Freedom making 28knots)

Do you ever wonder how the helicopter keeps the picture so steady. If there is a cyclone going on around it why isn't the plane buffeted about more? Still make me wonder if this is some kind of trick and not a real event. Opinions? Any body try to verify the event or know when it was supposed to happen?

Well it looks like a small ship anyway, like Holland cruise line, just look their life boat number no more than 10 so I donít think a mega-cruise can have the same problem, during a storm, maybe a hurricane and so far I know no cruise line will adventure sailing if a hurricane is at seas.
