Default RCL Thanksgiving Cruise from Cape Liberty

I was wondering what type of weather to expect in route from Cape Liberty down to the Eastern Caribbean? Are seas generally rough during mid-Nov when sailing down the eastern seaboard?

Check back a few days before the trip to get a better idea. It can vary quite a bit. You can get coastal lows that produce seas 20 feet or higher or have smooth sailing with 2-4 foot seas. Either way, the ship will get as far as possible from the rough seas.

We were in these sea conditions, 13 to 14 ft., 1 time the first week of May, down and back. It was not a pretty sight on the ship. Stopped me from doing anymore cruises that said down the east coast, even tho I can drive to the port.

I was on a cruise with about 10-12 foot seas. It was rolling some, but it didn't bother me too much. I was on the Mariner of the Seas on that trip. What size ship did you sail on?

Rough sea is exciting the first two or three hours but after that it is squishy stomach all the way. Motion sickness pill are always a must have for those times.

I was on the Explorer in February 2009 and had 28 foot seas. Loved it.
