Cruise, Travel and Social History: Hurricanes Hit The East Coast – 1938 / 1936 / 1933

Carnival Triumph sailing around Hurricane Isabel

Picture taken from U.S. Coast Guard helicopter Р17 Sep 2003.  From a reader who has sailed on cruise ships in weather like this: There is a big slow push from the floor as the bow rise over a swell, then a slight weightless feeling as the bow drops over the edge, followed by a big shudder that rattles the entire ship as the bow smacks into the bottom of the trough (which seems to be the moment captured in the above picture Рkeep in mind that ship is 180 feet high above the water and 893 feet in length).
