I am taking Mom on a belated Mothers Day Cruise In November... Actually we are both estatic about missing out on all the cooking/cleaning of the Thanksgiving holidays... But we wanted to know if anyone has traveled on the Majesty around the Thanksgiving time and was the weather generally mild? Hoping for some Mild temperatures and calm seas?

Also if anyone travels on the Majesty between now and then, if they could provide any menus from that ship?

Thank you

Rhonda

i have not sailed the majesty, but my 4 cruises to date have all been in november out of florida. i think this is the best time to go.
you are after hurricane season and the weather has always been 90ish. its an off peak time, kids are mostly in school too. the only thing i can think of negative is that it doesnt stay light until 9pm like during the summer.

i highly recommend.....

Hurricane season ends on November 30th, but generally the worst of the storms are over before then. No guarantees to that - last season there were good storms churning all through the month! We are cruising in September, during the height of storm season, and everyone has assured me that the ships will steer clear of anything too scary.

Weather.com has a good travel planning section where you can plug in your destinations and dates of travel, and get back the average highs and lows. We live in Central Florida and last November it was warm enough that I still swam outside every day. It will much warmer farther south - I would imagine averages would be low to mid 80s during the day, with mid 60s at night.

I've only been on 16 cruises, all but 2 were in the October-December time frame. We used to go during thanksgiving because we'd only have to use 3 vacation days for a week off. Last year we sailed November 5th for a 2 week cruise, it was the first time we ever ran into more than a 20-30 minute shower. We had rain for 6 days, however, there were 2 hurricanes brewing. Thankfully, we did not have to change our itinerary, we visited all of our ports. We also went ahead with all of our excursions, except Curacoa (because of lightning). Most of our excursions were snorkel/sail trips, so we were already wet. We went on a tour in Trinidad to the Angostura factory in the rain and had a great time. I bought some rain ponchos in Wal-Mart (in the sporting goods department) they were $.84/ea, when folded up they are 4x6x1/2" and weight about 3 ozs. I sure hope last year was our worst year for hurricanes, because we're going October 21 for a 10 day this year. I'm packing our ponchos just in case. As far as bad seas went, we had nothing that I would consider rough. We did have rain, but it really wasn't bad. Hope this helps, there's not much we can do about mother nature--but I hope you will experience sunshine and blue skies. Have a wonderful cruise!!

We went two years ago and the temps were in the mid 80s.
