The 64,0000 dollar question, but the length of the QM2 and its propulsion plus stabilising system should minimise the worst of weathers, but if there was a hurricane around travelling up the east coast of America !! We have crossed the Atlantic from West to East in the month of September and some days were a bit rough but we were on the old SS France, SS Norway when we did the trip in 2001, but like the QM2 the Norway was designed to ride out 3 waves so it was not to bad. As the stabilisers were not so modern there was a bit of a roll on some days.

Not another "What's the weather going to be like on our cruise" question? Calm sea, hot sun, and not a drop of rain of course! It's totally different from a normal August day on shore here! Happy cruising.

Oh dear, that is almost 4 weeks away. Do people think that we are weather forecasters? Jukes, you will be sailing across the Atlantic. Anything goes at sea. You pays your money and you takes your chances. Hopefully it will fine, but obviously there are NO guarantees.

Here is what I missed and what you could do when visiting this lovely French Town.A Taste Of Normandy Unlike the rest of France Normandy is blanketed in apple orchards instead of vineyards. For centuries these apples have been used to make a bubbly fermented cider and distilling that cid...

Me, my husband and my two children have just returned from a long weekend away in Southampton and on the Celebrity EclipseThe cruise was only two nights so I though to extend our little holiday by spending two nights in Southampton before the sailing and take them to a theme park. So we took them to Poulton Park which I highly recommend to families with young children. Great for 2 years old and up to the age of 6 yrs. Here we saw Peppa pig at Peppa pig’s world where all the themed attra...

Fancy a Movie Night in or Away?

By Haydn Jones

Haydn Jones's blog

There is nothing my family love more than cuddling up of a Sunday night , curtains closed, eating microwave popcorn and watching a movie. Its become a Sunday night tradition in our house. Although there is something my two boys love slightly more – movies under the stars on a cruise. We often end up missing the shows and evening entertainment, because for them this is the perfect treat. Sun loungers, blankets, hot chocolate and even pop corn and pizza bought to you whilst watching a fil...
