Default Wave action

This quote just came off the 'Princess Facebook Blog" from the Princess rep.
"Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Japan especially those directly affected by today’s devastating earthquake. We currently have no ships in Japan, nor are any of our ships considered at risk from any tsunami activity. All Princess passengers, crew and ships are safe. We will be assessing the tourism infrastructure in Japanese ports for our scheduled calls later this month:"

This quote is from Cunard;s Facebook blog,,
"Queen Mary 2 is en route to Nagasaki, all guests and crew on board are safe. The ship has limited internet access due to Japanese laws, we will keep this page up to date with any information we receive"

I just saw an Internet map of the wave action and it is the coast up to Russia along Alaska and North Pacific coast down to Vancoouver island and a bit to Seattle that has a green code meaning waves multiplied by .1+ meter factor not a 11+ meter which happend in Japan.
Your route is way down the coast , no effect at all.

As you say, frrench toast be dammed, give everybody including the crew a hug.
