    November Mediteranean

    I have seen a nice cruise which sails from Venice beginning of November this year which takes in Malta, Greece Rhodes etc. one thing is holding me back from booking - what is the weather like in November in the Med?

    Hi ewar, We went to Western Med at the end of October last year and the weather was perfect - sunny and warm but not too hot, lovely for sightseeing. It could be a bit chilly first thing and it got dark earlier/light later. I don't know if we were just lucky but I would go the same time again. I suspect it would probably be even nicer in the Eastern Med? However, we did have two days of rough seas coming back from Gibraltar. Go ahead and book, and have a wonderful time!

      We once flew to Venice in November, the fog came in and we couldn't fly home (another story) And on a cruise ship we had another problem with fog when we had to wait until the fog cleared enough for the pilots to let us dock. Lost half a day in Venice and then we were one of the last ships allowed to leave before the fog closed in again.

      Other ports on that trip the weather was lovely so I guess you just take a chance...Carol

        Hi ewar, I have been on two Mediterranean cruises in November, and on both we had varying sea conditions from flat calm through to storms, but on both cruises I was able to enjoy the time on board. I think you are more likely to have better weather in the Eastern Med than the Western Med, we did on both cruises, but nothing is absolutely certain. I would say go for it, the modern ships handle the bad weather very well, so have a great time.

        Cheers
        Bob

          Guess I just bite the bullet and go for it, I'm wheelchair bound and the cruise docks at all visits so I know I have somewhere to sleep at nights and able to get off the ship. I have done the Caribbean and Hawaii so not frightened of adventure it would just be a disappointment if we got no sunshine, but I suppose life wouldn't be an adventure if we all had a crystal ball to see the future.

          Many Thanks for all your replies

              Hope you are lucky. We had a great mix of weather last November. However lost a couple of ports--including Venice which was to have been the highlight of our tour. 8 hours fog bound in lagoon and then a diversion to another port---and a bus back to fog bound Veniceairport. However, we also had some lovely hot sunny days, some wet days. Just take a variety of clothes and enjoy it.

                We have cruised in the Mediterranean three times in November, because we do a B2B with Transatlantic. Each time the weather has been great for sightseeing, although not for sunbathing. We needed a light jacket most days but had only a couple of sprinkles of rain on one cruise. The big plus, in our opinion is the lack of crowds in the ports. I know we were lucky, but I would repeat the experience in a heartbeat and take our chances with the weather.
