We are booked on a 14-Night Mediterranean Transatlantic Cruise departing this November. The cruise embarks from Rome/Civitavecchia and disembarks in Ft. Lauderdale. We have 15 cruises under our belts, but this will be our first transatlantic cruise so we are not sure what to expect.
What has been typical weather on this route? I've read posts which have suggested, "it's pleasant" and "glass-like water," but I'm not sure what that means in terms of packing and preparations. Rome is typically 62° / 45° in November while Florida is 81° / 67°. I know there are variables, but would you please explain what temperatures and conditions we should expect as we cross the Atlantic?
I appreciate your help with this question. This community has actually taken this route and can offer advice.
