Thumbs up Carnival Triumph Stuffs real

To all who said the attached photo was 1. photo shop, BS, made up, Kiss my A#$#[email protected]#$. I just got off the very boat in the picture, spoke to the Captain, burser, purser, and Cruise director. They all not only signed my picture they all where on board. It happened in1998 during Hurricane Mitch, not Isabel as I said. So anyone who said it saw made up, Shut up.
P.S. The guy who sent the photo on of his dod with his face.... I hope your dog isnt as ugly as you.

That's one hell of a rogue wave, then.
I wonder how many people went flying forward when that happened? I wonder how many were tossing their cookies?

Out of curiosity, why was the ship being filmed in the middle of the ocean, in apparently pretty bad weather?

Default Lotsa Puke

So as the story goes. The ship was in NY, the Hurricane was comming. Had to leave port. Every turn it kept comming back. 110 mph wind. The Captain told me, every cabin, hall, everywhere was filled with, you know what. That wave was 75' tall. No damage to the outer part of the ship. Inside, tables, lamps, elevators, smashed. I am hoping that the captain will send me more photos. The plane was a Hurricane hunter.
Any way, that ship, captain is my all time Herro, What ride.

Actually, I would say that the wave shown is about 75 feet. The ship is 893' long and about 148' tall from water line to the top of the bridge. That wave's about 1/2 way up the hullsides.
