Default What to pack

We are doing QM2 New England in the Fall cruise this September / October and are not sure what type of clothing to pack , can anyone give us any idea of likely weather conditions and tempreatures. Is this likely to be like the UK in Autumn, do we pack layers or fear the worst ?

What about in July? What's the weather like out in the middle of the Atlantic?

New England is likely to be crisp and sunny, but it certainly can be cold and rainy. I would dress in layers and bring along a warm coat. If you are lucky, you will have a few days in the low 70s or high 60s but it is very unpredictable. You could even have a few snow flakes.

Ditto for the North Atlantic in July. It is unlikely to be warm, but it could be. I have taken crossings in late May/early June and froze to death in the mid-Atlantic, even during the day times. Bring a couple of sweaters and a jacket you can wear over them. Remember that the speed of the ship alone will mean a stiff breeze on deck. However, you can almost always find a place out of the wind and will need only a light jacket during the day.
