😱RAW FOOTAGE of Queen Mary 2 in Stormy Weather!😱

😱RAW FOOTAGE of Queen Mary 2 in Stormy Weather!😱


IN DECEMBER 2011 WE EMBARKED ON A SEVEN NIGHT
WESTBOUND TRANSATLANTIC CROSSING FROM SOUTHAMPTON ENGLAND TO NEW YORK. OUR ROUTE TOOK OUR SHIP A MERE 80 NAUTICAL
MILES FROM THE REMAINS OF THE RMS TITANIC. OUR OWN VESSEL, THE BEAUTIFUL QUEEN MARY 2,
ENCOUNTERED TROUBLE MUCH CLOSER TO ENGLAND: TWO SEPARATE STORMS OF SUCH SEVERITY OUR NAVIGATIONAL
COURSE WAS ACTUALLY ALTERED IN AN ATTEMPT TO MINIMIZE THEIR IMPACT. HERE’S SOME RAW VIDEO FOOTAGE FROM THE EXPERIENCE. THESE LITTLE PAPER BAGS WERE BLANK, BUT THEY
HAD MOTION SICKNESS WRITTEN ALL OVER THEM! THIS IS WHAT YOU CALL A SERIOUS STORM AT SEA! WHERE ARE YOU? SOMEWHERE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ATLANTIC OCEAN
– THE NORTH ATLANTIC OCEAN. THE WINDS WERE SO STRONG, IT TOOK QUITE A
BIT OF EFFORT TO SHOVE OPEN THE DOOR TO OUR BALCONY. NEVERTHELESS I DECIDED TO STEP OUTSIDE FOR
SOME FRESH AIR. MY CAMERA WAS GETTING WET, SO I SWITCHED TO
A WATERPROOF MODEL. OUR STATEROOM WAS NUMBER 8007, LOCATED TOWARDS
THE FORE OF THE SHIP ON DECK 8. IF YOU LOOK DOWN AT THE HANDRAIL ON DECK 7,
YOU’LL NOTE THAT IT HAS BEEN DISLODGED BY THE STORM. WINDS REACHED GALE FORCE 10, AND THE ACCOMPANYING
SWELLS BETWEEN 25 AND 30 FEET IN SIZE. NOW WE’RE IN THE CASINO ON DECK 2. NOTE THE TOWEL ON THE WINDOWSILL. IT’S THERE FOR A REASON! DID YOU GET THAT? FOR A WHILE, WATCHING THE STORM WAS OUR PRIMARY
MEANS OF ENTERTAINMENT. THE CREAKING SOUNDS YOU HEAR ARE ALL STRAIGHT
FROM THE CAMERA. THE RUNNING JOKE WAS THAT PASSENGERS WERE
TRAVELING THROUGHOUT THE SHIP BY RAIL – BY HAND RAIL, THAT IS! OF COURSE A LOT OF THE PLANNED ENTERTAINMENT
EVENTS WERE CANCELLED OR RESCHEDULED DUE TO THE STORM. NOW IF YOU THINK ABOUT IT, I ASKED HOW MANY
KNIGHTS WERE AROUND THE ROUND TABLE. I DIDN’T ASK HOW MANY SAT THERE! BUT LIFE IN THE SHIP’S GOLDEN LION PUB CARRIED
ON! AS DID THE GUEST SPEAKERS INSIDE THE ILLUMINATIONS
PLANETARIUM WHO WERE OCCASIONALLY INTERRUPTED BY SWINGING DOORS AND WEATHER UPDATES! WELL, THE PRESENT WEATHER IS STORMY. OCCASIONAL SHOWERS AND SQUALLS, TEMPERATURE
OF FIFTY AND A HALF CELSIUS OR 60 FAHRENHEIT, THE SEA 4 0 OR 57, THE WIND SOUTHWEST AT GALE
FORCE 10 OR 50 KNOTS GIVING ABOUT 65 KNOTS OVER THE OPEN DECK, VERY ROUGH SEAS AND A
HEAVY 8 METER SOUTHWESTERLY SWELL. NOW THESE CONDITIONS ARE A DEGREE OR TWO MORE
SEVERE THAN EXPECTED. AT TIMES IT WAS TOUGH TO RECORD QUALITY VIDEO
BECAUSE THE WEATHER HAD RENDERED OUR WINDOWS OPAQUE! AFTER THE SHIP SUCCESSFULLY NAVIGATED THE
STORMS, THE COMMODORE THOUGHTFULLY POSTED A COUPLE OF CHARTS FOR WEATHER BUFFS. AVAILABLE ON DVD.

  2. The Queen Mary 2 is an ocean liner, not a cruise ship she was designed to handle storms like that. I love regular cruise ships like Carnival has, but in a storm, I'd rather be on a liner like the QM2.

  3. "A towel on the windowsill" is the worst thing they are having to deal with, on a ship that appears to be rock steady in a sea that would have sunk any cruise ship in existence… incredible.

  4. Have to say you make it sound like something out of a disaster movie. QM2 looks to be rock steady in the water and coping very well with the worst the Atlantic can throw at her. Unlike the wingeing yanks onboard!

  5. Terrible jokes mate……
    The Atlantic Ocean has a reputation for horrendous storms and it obviously didn't disappoint you. It looked pretty rough and that's onboard a ship designed to take any punishment the sea can throw at it, imagine what it was like on a ship without enormous stabilisers??

  6. for me that is not a violent storm….as you can see in the video the wave is so small and did not hit the ship hardly…for me this is a minor only….no big deal for thes…just try what TITANIC did…hit an iceberg then if qm2 will not sink I will now belive that this ship is much better compare to the famous TITANIC

  7. Went across the Bay of Biscay in The Canberra in 1991…way, way worse than this. I was utterly pissed after a long day in Lisbon…and so seasick I thought I would die. I was working on board, as well !

  8. Oh crap.  That would leave a lot of people in the green mode.  I remember being on a ship with 25 ft swells.   My husband was green and It took me a day longer before I succumbed to illness.    Not a fun trip.

  9. I can sympathize with you on this journey. I sailed in November 1967 across the N Atlantic from Liverpool to Montreal on the Empress of England in a gale and remember how crazy it was. However it was a small ship only 27,000 Tons compared to Queen Mary II 76,000+ tons. I was only 18 however and had a great trip.

  10. I enjoyed watching the video. I want to experience this adventure. I want to live the event. The view is wonderful, expressive and romantic.I wished I were a woman's place that overlooked the window

  11. thank god im not one to suffer motion sickness.. (the rolling dosnt really bother me…

    the first cruise i went on, i was on the Carnival Pride, behind the RC ship that took so much damage it had to turn around in fed 2016… that was….my first cruse and….wow was i rough.

  12. In the casino… deck two. There is, mere metres away, a most fascinating display of the mighty forces of nature… wind and sea. The great and beautiful Atlantic Ocean. Meanwhile we hear the slot machines going strong! O the stupidity of it all.

  13. That's nothing the Atlantic is puny compared to the Pacific. Try the Pacific when it's angry. Home of the 100 plus foot waves. I know cause I've been out in it!

  14. This princess would be very nervous and not the least entertained while sailing the North Atlantic. No thanks, I am happy with my feet firmly planted on shore.. 🤮

  15. Club Med2😘😗😍😁😀😚😙✌✌✌✌👌👌👌👌🖒🖒🖒🖒🖒👍👍👍👌👌💝💝💝💝💝

  16. I was on the Queen Mary II in January 2018, and we went through a Force 10 storm as well. If was uncomfortable, many people (including myself) got sea sick, and you had to stay indoors and hold on to the handrails, but despite all that I never felt like I was in any danger.

  17. Been there. Done that. US navy north atlantic crossing to Naples Italy. 40 to 60 foot swells. Not fun. We had to tie ourselves in our bunks to keep from getting thrown out onto the steel deck. The ocean can be quite an unpridictable lady.

  18. This why this Ocean Liner was made for, to navigate through wild storms in the Atlantic. A normal Caribbean Cruise Ship would be dead in this storm😉

  19. 2:29 the wave comes pretty much right Below the window on deck 2 deck 1 must be literally underwater

  20. If I get a chance to be on this ship ever for a transatlantic journey I will choose the dates the weather will be best ie most stormy… In other words most bad…. I'll be fun..

  21. Be thankful the owner insisted on those balconies. He was smart enough to know that being able to see outiside well and "reconcile" the movement your inner ear "feels" with what your eyes see is what prevents motion-sickness. And there's an "emergency exit" aspect to them as well.

  22. Makes you realise just how nuts they were back in the day crossing this in (by comparison) tiny wooden boats to get to the "new world".

  23. Youtube’s just going to pure evil. Search Queen Mary 2 – one of first recommended results ‘ Queen Mary 2 Sinking’ no she fucking didn’t Google so shut up

  24. We've sailed on quite a few ships in various seas and the QM2 is by far the most solidly built of any we've experienced. We did not get the chance to experience seas shown in this video during our crossing, but we did get some waves, and I was amazed at the lack of creaks and rattles on the QM2.

  25. 想想光荣的大航海时代系列体现的航海场景是在太浪漫了;想一想当时的人真的遇到了风暴哪有什么浪漫可言?

  26. I envy these folks. If I was there, I'd be in my cabin getting myself some much needed sleep. That storm is beautiful.

  27. The main problem cruise ships encounter weather like this is paying customers are on a strict time schedule.

    A 50’ sailing yacht would see bad weather and postpone until weather has past. Best cruise ships can do is try to venture around a storm and not take a direct hit in the process.

    Is waiting a few days or even a week worth risking a life?
