Although I have never actually experienced a tsunami, my understanding is that the safest place for a ship to be is at sea, offshore. In fact, vessels sometimes might not even realize that a tsunami has passed. Trouble occurs when depths get shallower and the big wave shortens up and begins to break. Here’s a very brief description from the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich, England. A ship in port is more vulnerable but with technology that allows for more advance warning, crew and passengers will most likely be evacuated.

Hope this information is helpful.
