We sailed from Harwich a few years ago and up the Norweign fjords. We never noticed the sea on the full 2 weeks. Again we did a cruise to the Baltic and the sea is very calm , We did both of these in July/ August time.

The North Sea can be a beggar at times and you can never take it for granted. We had a trip that included Oslo and Hamburg in July with the most attrocious weather and we were on the great ocean-going QE2 so there is always about 25% a chance of some lumps in the water but if you're an optimist there is a 75% chance of good weather just no guarantees. my last trip that way on Constellation was like a mill pond both ways in July. If you have a problem with sea-sickness there are always tablets readily available on most good cruise ships and if the worse happens a jab from the doc on board will cost you but will take all that illness away in a short time and it lasts. Hope that helps....Nei.

Were Turning Japanese!

By Collette Apak

Collette Apak's blog

Over the last couple of years we have seen a huge rise in the number of people booking cruises that visit Japan. Maybe it’s the fact that many people have done the Mediterranean & Caribbean itineraries and are now wanting to look at somewhere different or whether a certain Joanna Lumley has prompted people’s interest after her TV series? Who knows? But in answer to this demand we are celebrating all things Japanese this week. I would certainly like to take a trip there and see...
