Hi, have just found this site, so please bear with me if I make mistakes. We are sailing on the Norwegian jewel, at the end of Sept, for 11 nights to New England. Have just upgraded to a balcony from inside, and am not sure if this is the right thing to have done, bearing in mind the cruise we are on. We have not cruised before and treated ourselves to a balcony after much thought. What sort of tempertures are likely? Any advice would be welcome as we are new to this. thanks

Hi Joni,
Welcome to cruise-chat. The scenery in New England in the fall can be spectacular. However, on the other hand, the weather in the fall is quite changeable and hard to predict. You could have sunny days and temps in the 70's, or it could be downright cold, windy and damp. Average fall temperatures range from 55 to 70+. Mark Twain said it best in his famous quote, "If you don't like the weather in New Engand, just wait a minute".

Even if the weather is not perfect - I think a balcony is still a wonderful amenity on a cruise. Being able to enjoy views of the ocean and passing scenery in quiet solitude can truly add to the cruise experience. I don't think you will be disappointed with your decision.

Joni, if the weather does get cooler, the ship will have blankets available by the pool and also on the Promenade deck. You can grab a couple and curl up on your balcony to watch the scenery go by. Get a pot of tea from room service and you are looking at a perfect at sea cruise day.

Have a great cruise!

Hi Joni,

have done the Indian Summer cruise in october 2001 on the NCL Sun. It was fantastic. But it was of cause later. So temperatures were different, beginning with warm weather in N.Y., becoming colder in Boston, getting frost in Maine and really cold coming to Quebeck.
But it was wonderful. With a balcony cabin you might be lucky to see whales. We saw Beluga whales in the Saguenay River and not only one of them.

I think, we take the same tour again in a couple of years, but then earlier, maybe also in september, but not too early, because the changing of the colours of the trees is really spectacular.

Enjoy your cruise, September comes so fast.

Best regards, Marita

Hi Marita,

thanx so much for your reply, it is nice to get so many helpful hints and encouragement from you all. It does indeed sound wonderful, and an added bonus if we could see some whales. I am getting the message that regardless of weather or any little problems that arise, cruising is the best. I can see us being spoilt for any other holiday. We are so excited and cant wait to see the new ship, I have been following its building progress and it is so close now.
Again thank you all for your messages. Any cruising tips would be very welcome.
