Eastern Med
Ok. So i've been looking into cruising the eastern med for the first time. Call me mental but, i love rough weather when i'm onboard. Can anyone tell me what time of year it is most likely to be rough at sea? The itinerary i've been looking at goes from Southampton to Gibralter to Alicante to Barcelona to Toulon to Florence to Rome to Lisbon and finally back to Southampton. Any information on how the weather is in those places in November would be nice. Thanks - Joe :D

Actually Joe, I would consider your cruise more of a Western Med cruise; but semantics aside, the weather, especially the sea conditions, are pretty hard to predict. You might want to consider a Transatlantic in January for optimum roughness.

Yes.. you are looking at a Western Med cruise... eastern ports are Turkey/Greece/ Egypt etc...

But to be honest with you F-Mattox is correct.. you can never predict weather. But as a general rule the cruise lines tend to put their cruise "seasons" for when they expect the better weather to occur. So if you are truly looking for rough seas... you are going to be hit or miss at best.
