As it looks as though you will be travelling out of Southampton on Nov 5th. the first part of the cruise will not be warm. La Coruna and Lisbon can be wet and chilly at that time of the year although it is pot luck. Madeira is generally warm in November although rain is certainly possible. Santa Cruz de Tenerife is a lousy port and that end of the island is traditionally the rainy end but if you get fine weather it's very warm. If you intend going up Mount Teide then be prepared for snow on the top. From here on as you will be taking a more southerly passage just north of the famous Doldrums the weather should start to get really warm even hot and it is possibly the best time to visit Miami. So a fleece and some rain equipment will be fine for 5 to 7 days and shorts and bikinis for the rest should be the order of the day. Great ship with lots to do and wonderful atmosphere....Enjoy...Neil and Ida Dow.

Who can say - look how cold it is today in supposedly mid-summer.......In theory once you get down to Madeira/Canaries it should be 70+ the whole way. Make sure you book a port side balcony on the west bound sailings to maximize the amount of sunlight on the balcony during the day. With the westbound you also do have the advantage of gaining one hour on 6 different days .
