Ok Florida 70-ish, belize and Mexicao 80 ish. What will the temp feel like on board on the days at sea in between. Since we are traveling a distance I suppose we'll be sailing faster than we are used to going to the Bahamas. Should we still just pack suummer stuff? Shorts, t's? Or should be bring some spring type clothes- long sleeves, light sweater type stuff?

We have had snow and ice 3 days in a row this week. this is going to feel good.

December still isn't too bad and the shorts and t-shirts will still work for the days at sea. However, I have had days where it was a mix. Sunny but the wind would make it cool enough that a windbreaker was needed. In other words, don't just pack summer stuff. You may not need the windbreakers or blue jeans, but why chance it. If you don't bring them then Murphy's Law will take effect and you'll be cold.

Even in the dead of summer, the wife always brings a couple of light sweaters. The inside of the ship is always too cold for her. (The lounges, the theater etc) So if you do the same, you will probably use them inside and have them handy if needed for outdoor use too.

Yes, always take a few longsleeve shirts or a sweater and slacks or jeans for the evening. They believe in air conditioning, especially in the show venues and the lounges. And it is amazing how fast the weather can change from the day you left to the day you are heading back. I don't like to overpack, yet I have "always be prepared" ingrained in me.

We just stopped at Ensenada, Mx last Sunday & at 1 PM it was cold. Perhaps 58 degrees, bright & sunny. All the vendors had on coats. Not exactly swimming weather. I'm sure the further south you go it'll be warmer.

I am with Jim, my "outfits" always include a sweater or cardigan. A ship like a nice restauraunt anywhere may feel chilly when you sit down, and it takes two glasses of wine till I warm up, just kidding. Shelby, you will have clothing packed for the trip home, and trip donw that may double. In case "overpacking" may be an issue.

Hello Jim,
I see where you were on the Mariner last year. Do you have any tips for me?
Thanks, Norma
