Ships in rough seas

I'm not a ship guy, but I always wondered about this. Are the biggest ships like air craft carriers so big they can pretty much handle any sized waves like rogue waves? What would happen if one wound up in a hurricane? Or is there a general wave height that each ship has as a limit?
Thanks, and sorry if it's a stupid questions,
Mike
