Very poor (and potentially life-threatening) decision on someone's part.
Where did you get that info from? I'm wondering why their report is supposed to be believed over others?

Comments in the comment section of people that were onboard.

It's also being discussed here in the DCL forum.

Seriously? So I saw a guy walk pass a mirror who was, I just assumed, wearing shorts. So quick if you blink, you miss it. But now you've pointed it out, its become a 'deal'. You must have a trained eye when it come to naked guys

The original notes about it came from the comments on the CNN site.
I tried playing the clip at full speed on the site and it could go either way, just looking there.
So, I did some additional video sleuthing using my cache of video software.

Yes, I do have a "trained eye," but it's not from looking at naked guys...
I've been a professional TV videographer and video editor for a few decades.

And, I've learned long ago not to point a lens at mirrors or highly-polished, high-gloss anything with the camera
rolling.
The shooter on the ship was not quite as careful but, under the circumstances, I can understand.

Seriously??? That's a lot of effort to prove an argument. But the bottom line is, who cares? This is not about the clothing or lack there of by the photog, it's about people being in a very scary situation on their cruise ship.

At first, I didn't think the pics of the ocean looked that bad, but the aftermath of the gift shop was very telling. Very fortunate that there were no injuries or death there.

There is no amount of applied effort...
or lack of applying effort...
that will not get criticized on a discussion board.

Not trying to be argumentative, but really? It's amazing how many people are second guessing a well trained and surpremely experienced captain. Uncomfortable ride? Probably. Dangerous? Doubt it..unless you decided to leave your cabin and walk around. Besides...if I had doors crashing like that, and I had been told to stay in my cabin I would have taken that time to put everything away....there wouldn't be anything in my cabin to fly around. Things would have been stowed.
It amazes me to see how many people think that was a horrible decision on the captain's part.

Yet another reason why I don't think I ever want to take a cruise. Yikes!

Same here . Besides the motion sickness, I think I would have major anxiety if I was going through that.

We were on a cruise this past January (non-Disney) and our boat was rocking so much because of the waters were so choppy (but nothing like what was on the video). Some days it was really hard to walk or just stand still. DH was in bed with motion sickness the first few days of our trip while the kids and I were o.k as long as we took motion sickness pills (DH took them too but they didn't seem to work for him). Luckily it got much better once we got to the Caribbean. This cruise was also a first for our family too...we will not be doing a cruise again in the winter time....at least not for a long while .

Like everyone, I Regret the passengers went through this. I've been through some bad oceans too.
But since you claim to know wave energy characteristics and ship ballast specs, and i'm curious, I'll ask. Exactly what size wave would reliably capsize the Fantasy???

Are you also the Captain of a cruise ship? Your vast knowledge would be appreciated.
