Looking at the stats for Jan/Mar 2008 Nice was 55/60 with lows of 40/45 at night whilst Rome was 60/65 with lows of 45/50 but on a few days it dropped to -2. The weather doesn't start picking up until May and you could have quite choppy waters in the Jan/Mar period. You don't say east/west Med but certainly warmer in the east but no way of escaping the choppy seas, I would be looking at the Caribbean at that time of the year and thats where we will be in April, 2009 with temps in the low 70's.

Well what a week it’s been with the collapse of Monarch, it has sent shock waves through the travel industry and here at our team have been working hard to ensure that our cruise customers have been looked after and that it has had a minimal effect on their cruise booking.I have been so sad and upset for all those employees waking up last week to find their job had gone…just like that!
