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.

Thomson Cruise A whole new...

By Brad Smith

Having worked for Thomson for nearly a decade before coming to www.CRUISE.co.uk, I saw the company change dramatically over the years. From the airline purchasing brand new Dreamliner planes from Boeing, to the introduction of exclusive properties to cater for every type of holiday maker.Whilst working there I saw a few minor changes to the cruise side of the business, but nothing dramatic. The ships were always old and small, but customers loved them none the less. Well, that’s changed con...

Looking For School Holiday Cruises?

By Amy Ginder

Amy Ginder's blog

This time of year we have a lot of calls asking for late availability for the school holidays. I hate to be the bearer of bad news but it is very late in the day. Most cruise lines have filled all of their 3 and 4 berth cabins and those that have space will charge you astronomical prices.So what do you do if you are looking to cruise in the school holidays? The answer is book early! Book now for 2018, if you leave it to nearer the time not only will the prices climb but you are unlikely to ge...

 Thomson Cruises have made some changes in recent years and things are really working for them, in the last 5 years they have seen an increase in passenger numbers of 40%, with 20% being in the last year alone.They have always been looked down upon by a lot of customers, although unjustly so as their reviews have always been good. But with older ships and less of the pomp and ceremony of other lines they have been viewed as being at the lower end of the market.In 2016, they made a major ...
