What was it like, Louis? Many of us may already have read about the wave... but it is almost impossible to imagine what it may have been like  ??? ...

Were you able to save any bottles?? Much damage to glasses?

How long did it take until everything was tidied up again...?

The ship was on a heavy weather warning so certain precautions were taken.But it was lunch time and the service was on full swing.It comes all of a sudden and you dont have time to save anything ,all you can do is hold on to something.I was then working in the Mauretania Restaurant Bar had damage on a few wine bottles.In the restaurant and galley there was a lot of damage.The tidying is done quite quick.
