Despite Their Size, Cruise Ships Are Susceptible to Swaying
While cruise ships offer idyllic images of smooth sailing in marketing materials, they are not impervious to the challenges posed by rough seas. Despite their substantial size, cruise ships have a relatively top-heavy design, rendering them susceptible to swaying and rolling when confronted with stormy weather and choppy waters.
This reality can make for a less-than-pleasant experience for passengers, especially those who have yet to acclimate to the ship’s motion. For those lacking their sea legs, a significant portion of their cruise may be spent seeking solace in the confines of the ship’s interior, as they wait for the sea conditions to stabilize and provide a smoother voyage.
