Mansfield - Answered a Question by SQUIRRELL (24 Jan 08 12:58)

We travelled west on the QM2 two years ago and even though the weather was nice we were sailing into the wind, thus doubling the effect. However, if you were travelling east, I guess you would not feel a thing. Still had a great time. We saw whales and had dolphins trying to keep up with the ship. The eerie bit was sailing over the grave of Titanic. Sailing into New york was spectacular. The captain waits for low tide so the ship can pass under the bridge....awesome Have a great trip!

Just returned from trip from new york to carribean. We sat out on deck in light pants and t shirt from lunchtime on the 1st day and last day on return. It was windy but if you go to aft deck 7 you can get shelter. Dont forget to put sun cream on though. Once in the carribean weather was good in Jan little bit of rain. She is a fantastic trip wish we were going again now waiting for 09 cruises from April to come out.

We sailed the atlantic on qm2 in april. the top deck is not open to passengers this time of year, however all other indoor pools are heated and the spa is divine.

No fly cruises have now become so popular. Each year, as the number of people taking cruise holidays increases, so too does the number who want to cruise, but dont want to fly.

By Anne Eaves

Anne Eaves's blog

My husband and i have recently returned from a cruise on Symphony of the Seas to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary and without a doubt it was one of the best cruises we have done. We arrived in Barcelona on 27th April and had one night at the Onix Liceo Hotel which is centrally located about half way down Las Ramblas on a side street, and is a great location for a pre cruise stay if you are looking for something central.We took a taxi to the port the following morning where the check i...
