We've been in the med mid October and it has been warm and sunny but last year we sailed 19 October from Palma and it was quite rough for a couple of days until we reached southern Italy..but that was unusual. It should be fine....Celebration is a lovely ship but if it does get rough and you feel a bit queazy go down to the restaurant for meals rather than up to the buffet and stay as low as you can and as near the middle of the ship as possible to minimise the movement and if you go on deck keep looking at the horizon. I always carry Stugeron in the first aid box but have only ever taken one tablet 'just in case' ..... and we've done 7 cruises in the Atlantic, irish Sea, North Sea, Bay of Biscay, Med, Red Sea and the Gulf so the chances of you being seasick are fairly minimal I should think!!!!

Do Silversea Float Your Boat?

By Lesley Millward

Lesley Millward's blog

In the luxury cruise world there are a few cruise lines you would I am sure, remember. The likes of Regent, Crystal, Viking, Hapag Lloyd, Seabourn, Oceania, and Silverseas. They are all equally excellent in their own right and all have die hard fans who would not go with anyone else. In all my years working in the cruise industry , I have been on many of these ships and seen what they offer yet one cruise line for me, had never really “floated my boat” and that is Silversea.It i...
