    Did you guys get wet when the waves splashed on the boat?

    • Hi Skylar, in heavy weather the captain issues the command to ‘secure all weather decks’ which means we can’t go out on them. That’s to keep people from getting swept overboard. When the weather’s not quite so bad it’s still possible to get wet when a wave hits the ship just right. Elizabeth Halliday and Chris Linder got caught by a wave like that on the bow a week or so ago.
