Does anyone know if the itinerary from NYC up to St. John's and Halifax on the Carnival Victory 5 day cruise encounters much rough water? My husband is VERY prone to seasickness and sometimes feels the waves on the 110,000 ton ships to the Caribbean.

Thanks,
Susan

Susan, considering that the Caribbean is like glass(usually), he might not fair well with the Atlantic Ocean. Bring along Dramamine or get the patch for him.

I went out of NYC once and noticed that the waters seemed a little more rough than going out of FL. It may have been just because of bad weather but I would make sure he takes something before the cruise just in case. HAVE FUN!!!!

In general, yes, the seas aren't as calm. Yet, on several of our cruises to the region, the seas were incredibly smooth. Much depends on the time of year, weather, and a host of other factors.

When are you going, and on what ship? (Victory?)

I didn't so much notice the ship rocking more but I can tell you when I went to Nova Scotia on the Victory in July, 2004, as soon as we cleared NY Harbor, the temperature dropped like 40 degrees. It was in the 80's in NYC and by the time we were out to sea good, the temperature felt like it was in the low to mid 50's.

The weather going north is unpredictable. You will have to bring a couple of outfits that are suitable for cooler weather. When we got to Nova Scotia, the weather was in the low sixties. I had on pants, short sleeve sweater and a windbreaker, which was just fine.

Needless to say, only the bravest children enjoyed the hottubs and swimming pools on this cruise. However, it was a short 4 day and the passenger load was a great group so the weather did not diminish a great cruise experience.

Other people have taken this same itinerary in the summer and they have told me it was hot hot hot. So it is a crap shoot.
