If you sail out of New York at about 6pm by 6pm the next day you will be about level with Jacksonville N. Carolina and will have already noticed the change to warm weather. By 7am. the next morning you will be level with Jacksonville, Florida and from then on the weather will just keep getting hotter and you should, all things being equal, be sunbathing on the deck that day. Does that please you?….I have a cruise booked on Explorer later this year but haven't been on her yet, Nei.

This has been asked many times before - usually warmer by lunch on Day 1 and fine to swim and sunbathe by day 2. But with global warming who knows..

Hi Neil - we are taking our 2nd cruise on Explorer in March next year - the 12nighter. Been on her once before over to Bermuda - OK - yes she is large but I did quite like her - and the art work is fantastic.

We've just returned from Florida and and mini cruise round the Bahamas (which is higher than the Caribbean) and the weather was fantastic, in fact one day it was too hot to sunbathe! I have also cruised early April around the Caribbean and again the weather was brill. You should have nice weather i would guess.

Sailed ou of New York on Explorer last November,it was cold, bitter on deck. But guess what by the next day we were on deck sunbathing. Unfortunately, it rained for a couple of days and the Islands were a washout, but that didn't spoil our fun, splashing through the puddles in our flip-flops, what a sight. Coming back into New York we managed to continue sunbathing until 5pm the night before we docked. Enjoy, make the most of it nomatter what the weather is my advice!!

Traditional or Freestyle ? Whi...

By Camilla Edwards

Carnival`s decision to introduce a new rule of traditional diners on their ships made me think of the whole subject of when, where and with whom do you choose to dine on your cruise. On board Carnival Glory and Carnival Conquest passengers who opt for first or second sitting traditional dining will be turned away from the restaurant if they are more than 30 minutes late for their selected seating. So that means be there on time , and probably queue to get on, or go to the buffet.Dining time s...

Baby number 3 is on it’s way!!Baby is due around mid January (although we’re sure he or she will be late and will come on Rafe’s birthday on 20th January).Being 35 means I’m classed as ‘higher risk’ due to my age (I’m not THAT old, am I??) bu...

It is amazing how many guest I have spoken to over the last few weeks that have booked excursions through the cruise liner, which I may add are quite expensive. Cruise liners make a lot of money selling excursions at a hefty premium, but many people are happy to pay the extra because booking with the ship is the easy option and they have the comfort of knowing the captain will not leave port until everyone on his ships tours is back on board. I totally understand the reasons behind this but b...
