Day 4, 2/26, midnight: transiting the Windward Passage. Very heavy commercial traffic; total 20+ vessels on radar during the passage. Successfully avoided being rear-ended by cruise ship Legend of the Seas. It was passing a freighter by going inshore of traffic lane, passed the freighter but failed to see us due to so many other large ships on radar. Fox hailed cruise ship on VHF 16 & altered course. Continued doing so with other traffic.
Sunrise: calm winds & seas began building to SW 6 knots, then SW 10-15 by sunset. SW winds NOT forecast. SW winds = directly on the nose for our course.Continuing to motor. 650 mi. to go.
