Bertotti L., Cavaleri L. Analysis of the Voyager storm. In: Ocean Engineering, vol. 35 (1) pp. 1 - 5. Pergamon-Elsevier Science Ltd, 2008.
We analyse the wind and wave conditions present in the Mediterranean Sea at the time and location when the cruise ship Voyager was reportedly hit by one or more big waves and suffered substantial damage. The analysis is done using wind and wave modelling supported by satellite and buoy wind and wave data. Granted the hindcast of the storm, we also analyse the local conditions for the possibility of freak waves.
