You will be fine, just take some tablets just incase we have done biscay in June, weather excellent but much different in November. You should be ok in July/August. Cruising is wonderful not to be missed. We are going next Sat on Sea Princess, can't wait Regards, Eila (Warrington.

We have crossed the Bay several times and most times it was like a mill pond. On the occasions when it was a litle rough I took a travel pill, went to sleep for a couple of hours and then i was fine. My husband does not suffer at all.

My late mother went on many cruises in the 1960's and was, without fail, seasick on every single one but she still went on them because she new that by the third day she would be fine and have a great holiday. I took her on Oriana a few years ago 30+ years after her last cruise and, much to her surprise, she was fine, despite there being a bit of a swell. Yes I know being seasick isn't nice (I take after my mother!) but you are letting the thought of one particular day cloud your decision to take her on a great holiday. I would recommend a cabin on a lower deck about two thirds of the way back (but not a deck immediately above the engines) to minimise the effects of any rocking and pitching you may encounter. I also find getting out on deck in the fresh air makes me feel a lot better than staying in the cabin. Book Now!

As the previous answers indicate nobody can guarentee the weather conditions, although the odds are that you would be ok. However you do have alternatives if you like to cruise the Med. Take the overnight train to Barcelona, where a lot of cruises leave from or take the day train to Nice in S.France, stay there for a night and then get the train to Savona in Italy(abour 90 mins), where Costa cruises depart from. We do the latter and regard it as part of our holiday and the great advantage is that you are at the interesting end of the Med in my view eg Italy, Greece, Turkey, Malta et.

Take the tablets they give you on board the ship. I was ill but after one tablet and half an hour on my bed i was like a different person.

Costa Concordia 5 Years On

By Gemma Coles

Gemma Coles's blog

I am sure most people will remember hearing the news when the Costa Concordia sank. This January we are 5 years on from this tragedy. The ship hit an underwater rock and then capsized near Tuscany. The ship had been carrying 4252 people and unfortunately 32 people drowned when the ship sank. I can remember it clearly seeing videos and images on the tragedy. I can’t imagine how these people felt being in this position. The captain of the ship was sentenced to 16 years in prison for...

P&O offer some fantastic islands and resorts in the Caribbean and have done for a number of years now. Returning to the same destinations doesnt seem to bother regular and repeat P&O customers because lets face it, when you are only in the ports for 1 day there is always something new to see or visiting your favorite beach may be something you really enjoy.Have you ever repeated an itinerary because you have enjoyed it so much?I have visited Cuba, Jamaica and Dominican Republic more t...
