Cruise ship gets trashed by rough seas

[yt description]
Met some rough sea in the Bay of Biscay
An intense low pressure over the Bay with Hurrican force winds whipped up the sea a little bit!
A pretty seasickening day for the crew and passengers alike
The big splash is the ship falling off the crest of the wave - the Captain put the engines in reverse to try and stop this from happening
During the storm some waves were seen to be at the same height as the bridge therefore approximately 18 m/ 58 ft high
The only thing you can do in sea like this is to head into the waves - allowing the waves to strike side-on could be disastrous and would make the ride much more uncomfortable
Beeping alarm is the radio set receiving a message if anyone is wondering, nothing to do with the oncoming wave...but adds to the drama of the video
Had to stop filming because I had to attend to the ship's library and coffee machine that had slid violently onto the floor
And FYI - the person saying "shit!" was the Captain - lol :-)
