Thanks for sharing your experience. Sounds like warm clothes will be the key to enjoying the crossings. We're looking forward to the relaxation so we want to be comfortable. We got word from a couple that sailed in June and who said it was too chilly even then to be outside much, as they'd only packed Hawaii clothes.
Stayed tuned and we'll let you know how it goes. My mantra is "It's Hard to Have a Bad Day on a Cruise Ship" so I know it'll be Great!
