While I don't have a picture of it handy but I think I might be able to contend for this one... Returning from deployment during a hurricane back in the early 90's I was in command underway when we stuffed the deck of my aircraft carrier into some pretty hefty waves. The result of the splash even landed solid water on the windows of the bridge witch is at 112' height of eye! Now that's stuffing a seriously large boat!

We had a tree service working at our house Sunday. The owner was on the sister ship of that Carnival ship, and was at sea the same time. He said the captains made different decisions on how to get around the storm, and that Carnival ship made the "wrong" decision, underestimating the storm surge. He contends the picture is real.

Not that I believe a tree-service person, but who knows...
