Firstly you can lessen your chances of stormy weather by going in June to September, secondly once through the North sea your chances of stormy weather are greatly reduced and if Warnemunde is a port of call then the ships do not go too far north although on the return trip they most probably will. 90K ships, like the Millennium Class do have stabilisers but will move about in the really heavy weather I have found that Princess ships in this range move more than others. If you are trying to compare this with the car ferry ships then cruise ships are in a far better class of stability, that is an assurance I can give through experience. Chances are the trip will be fine and if the weather is rough it will be for a day or possibly two only. I hope this is a reasonable answer to a question with a lot of “ifs” and “buts” about it….Nei.

Thanks for your comments and I now understand a lot more. Sure the North Sea can be a lumpy place but the larger ships do handle the conditions so well and my advice to you is pick a ship that is large and sleek if you are able because that shape should give you more confidence in its capabilities. QE2, QM2, Celebrities Millennium Class, RCI Radiance Class and Vision Class (we have been in some tremendous storms on Legend without a worry) and Holland America ships. All of these will give you stability and good feelings. There will be others I have omitted but it gives you a good range from which to choose. Regards.....Nei.
