Cruise Ships Self-Leveling Pool Tables Counteract The Motion of the Ocean

 |  |  |  |  |  March 23, 2017


I’ve never been on a cruise before, because the ocean freaks me out. I don’t even want to think about what horrors lie deep under the sea. I’ve always rather assumed that giant cruise ships are pretty much immune to the waves outside, but I guess I am wrong.

One look at this gyroscopic, self-leveling pool table on a cruise ship called the Radiance of the Seas will show you that in rough weather, the ship can move A LOT. Just look at how much the table has to move in order to keep its surface flat.

This video was shot back in 2011, but it still provides a perfect visual reference to why I won’t go on a cruise. I kept expecting someone to fall over with all of that motion, but it never happens.
