Currently the Oasis of the Seas is crossing the Atlantic after the brief stop in England. While in transit to Florida, the ship is running into quite the Atlantic storm. I’ll let RCI CEO Richard Fain explain it;

The one thing you can never count on, though, is the weather.  It seems that we have managed to time our crossing perfectly to coincide with the worst of a north Atlantic winter storm.  That storm has resulted in relative wind speeds of 60-70 mph (a hurricane starts at 74 mph).  It has also resulted in significant wave heights of up to 30 feet (significant wave heights essentially means consistently over a period of time).  Some individual waves reach even higher.


No need to worry if you will be on her soon. The ship is so big that I bet all the wind and waves are barely noticeable inside.
