In hindsight, it was a good thing, because around that time the sea was unusually rough. So rough in fact, that Azura didn't set sail until the next day. Indy and another ship, Black Watch I think went out and had trouble just off the coast of Cornwall and entering the Atlantic. Never seen so much red on the marineweather website.
It really is a hit or situation for sailing through BoB, or across the Atlantic. If like me you struggle with getting sea legs, then you might want to take a few smaller cruises to get used to being on a ship more, and also stock up on the seasick tablets. Dare say it, but found RCI's tablets to be most effective..
