Hi there. I have done two Aurora Christmas Caribbean packages from Southampton. Sure there are 3-4 days of the transit either way when sunbathing is'nt first choice, though the improving weather is noticeable each day. The joy is that after 4-5 days the sun is virtualy unlimited and the islands and beaches are great. Also Aurora does this cruise very well and on these trips she is very family friendly.

You should only have about 2 days of potentially poorer weather at either end. The Christmas cruise get booked up very early and your biggest problem maybe booking a cabin you want.

Whilst I see what you are saying I am afraid that unless you are willing to fly your understanding of the situation is probably correct. So let’s look at the situation. You may get away with as little as 2 days where sunbathing is not practicable each way or it may turn out to be 12 or more. That is in the lap of the Gods. Are you saying that on a modern liner with all those facilities all you require is sunshine ? I would also say that there is a strong likelihood that your “kid” will be preferring to be with the other “kids” doing what they do. If you can’t see yourself enjoying a cruise without sun for that amount of time then maybe you should think again or stay home and buy a tanning machine or grit your teeth and fly. So many people would give their eye teeth for such an experience. Or, just maybe, I am being too harsh again, ah! Regards …Nei.

It will indeed be chilly until you get passed Madeira. We just did the world cruise on Aurora, which is a lovely ship and we weren't warm until 4 days in. I wouldn't let that put you off though. BUT it's very doubtful you'll get that holiday anyway. Friends of ours have had trouble booking it. You have to do this very early on.

My Dream Cruise

Make no mistake, my heart lies with the Ocean. The rolling waves, the fresh sea air and the gentle shudder as we slice through the water will always give me goosebumps, but this got me thinking – do I have a dream cruise? The answer is YES! Tonight I was browsing some options for a customer when I stumbled across a stunning itinerary on a truly iconic ship. Here is that itinerary:Southampton, United KingdomAt SeaAt SeaAt SeaAt SeaAt SeaAt SeaNew York, United StatesAt SeaAt Sea Christmas...

Celebrity Edge is on its Way

By Robin Clarke

Robin Clarke's blog

So the brand new Celebrity Edge has now gone on sale for her maiden voyage on the 16th of December starting her Caribbean voyages where she will be based in Fort Lauderdale. This ship is like no other at sea with so many fantastic new amenities on-board such as the new infinite balconies which even I was blown away by this. The balcony itself is now within the cabin and has a separator if you wish to use it to separate the balcony from the cabin. You then have a switch that you can push that ...
