Sorry but you have to tell us more......When are you thinking of going? What route will the ship be taking? What ship is it? Tell us more and we'll tell you more otherwise we would have to write reams. ......Neil.

Silly me... I misread the question and you said it all..... Should be ok but the Atlantic is difficult to predict. You may get some winds and high seas but you might also get fog, if you get good sunny weather all the way it would be unusual, let's just hope you are going to the USA and get the extra hours aboard. Once more my apologies for my first reply. .... Neil.

We did New York to England at end of October and it was fine. Obviously everything depends on the weather. As you will know some years September is the best month for mild weather and others dreadful. Dont worry about it being rough you dont know your moving in these modern cruise ships, just go away thinking that you will enjoy yourselves, dont worry about the sea. A few years ago we were out at sea in a hurrican. It was great fun one of the best cruises we had.

If I knew the answer to your question I could become a very rich person! There is NO way of knowing what the weather will be in the Atlantic in September - or in any other month of the year! However, I note you have indicated you are going on Cunard so I am HOPING that means you will be on the Queen Mary 2. If so, I wouldn't worry about the weather too much as the QM2 is a liner, rather than a normal cruise ship, and it is specifically designed to deal with heavier weather. I have done the crossing twice, both times experiencing a range of weather during the trip from calm to very rough. I cannot imagine how horrendous that trip would be on a regular top-heavy cruise ship. Stick to the QM2 for that crossing and you will be fine. The stabilization is excellent.

Fred To Enter The River Market

By Camilla Edwards

Fred Olsen have long been one of my favourite cruise lines, Braemar was the first ship I ever did a ” proper cruise”. When I say proper I mean not a mini cruise or ship visit as it was a 14 night Canary Islands sailing.In the last couple of years Braemar has been one of the lines ships that have started to do river cruising. Although in reality it is not really totally river cruising as the ships have been sailing from a UK port – Dover or Southampton.German Waterways sails ...

They are all Cruise Ship Godmothers!Every time a new ship is set to launch we still love to guess who will be chosen, Godmothers lists are like reading through ‘Who’s Who’ list for the Rich and Famous (and also not so famous)It is a tradition to have a famous name to christen and bless a new ship and become the Godmother (not so many have Godfathers…)A ship Godmother by tradition is a well known face chosen to name the ship to bestow good luck and divine protection ove...

Friendliest Countries in the World

By Zara Kelly

Zara Kelly's blog

The inspiration for this blog comes from some clients who are travelling to Sri Lanka on holiday this year. I visited the pearl in the Indian Ocean a few years ago, and was blown away by how friendly the country is happy to chat to strangers about spices through to cricket, a passion there!I think speaking to locals give you a real insight into the destination. Other than Sri Lanka, the friendliest place I have been to is Japan, where people will literally stop you in the street if you look ...
