Storms hit cruise ships; cruise line ads on YouTube leave you feeling queasy

26Sep10

YouTube has recently started to recieve more videos from people witnessing storms while cruising.

The one above has been mentioned by the MD of P&O in London today as a situation simply unlikely to be experienced on their Northern Hemisphere fleet. The original video that sparked the media attention was from an Australian cruise from around 2 years ago. But now a small sub-genre in video clips has grown, with a scary wow factor, as people are watching cruise ship CCTV and passenger videos of the effect of violent storms at sea.

Is it just me, or is the cruise ad placement slightly out of place here? Is anyone interested in booking a Disney Cruise or a P&O Cruise after watching the following ship appear to role back and forth 45 degrees in a storm?

Silly me, I bet it’s new Disney Theme Park ride – Poseidon Adventure.
