Sure enough the next afternoon after we left Villefranche the weather was rough and there were lots of white caps. About 2 hours after we left Villefranche the captain came over the loudspeaker and told us that they woudl do their best to make the conditions as calm as possible, but that he was asking that we all stay out of the outside decks as the winds were up to 90 knots. So for the rest of the evening the doors leading to the outer decks were closed off. The weather was rough, but since we were prepared and had been warned by the waitstaff the night before, we were all ok.

anyway, with todays modern ships as the other posters said you usually need to look over the side to make sure the ship is actually moving. we are doing an atlantic crossing in december coming up. now that one we might feel the 25 ft waves!

My mom had a very bad experience in the Panama Canal where she and many others got sea sick.What?
My advice would be to go when the weather is at its driest which would be in the summer months. As far as the size of the modern cruise ships they are no match for rough seas unless you are talking about the Q2 or the new Queen Mary which were built for Ocean crossings. But that is another topic entirely.
It will be in October (next year)

Your Mother can always get a shot from the doctor onboard if she has a problem. You are a wonderful son to do this for them.
