It probably will be very cold outside on the balcony, but I would still get one as if you are on the land side of the ship - the views will be beautiful - the scenery down the coast (at least Maine) is very wild and breath taking - If you do come, please plan on dressing in layers - as the weather can change very quickly. The temps should be in the 50-60's day (Maine) - It should start getting dark around 5:30 (I think) then after the change in time it will be dark around 4:30 of so. The shortest day of the year sunset is approximately 3:55. By the end of October here the leaves will be all gone - JanJan in Maine,
I just booked the Constellation for 9/07 and have an aft cabin. This way, I figure we won't get as much of the chilly breeze and, as crazy as the weather is on the east coast, if it's nice, we have a fabulous balcony.We had an aft balcony on the Enchantment OTS last September, and it WAS fabulous...sheltered from the wind, it was a great spot to read and nap on our first sea day (windy with temps in the 60's); we also had many wonderful photo ops as we sailed away from each port. We would book this location again for this route.

We are looking at taking the 14-day Oct. 28 cruise from Quebec City to Fort Lauderdale but have been debating about the type of room to get. We always get rooms with balconys, but with this trip late in October, we are thinking it might be too cold to use a balcony. Has anyone taken this trip before and what type of room do you recommend? There is a big difference in price between these two types of rooms, plus with the weather and early sunsets, wonder if it is worth the price? I really don't want to get an inside room if I have to. We have three sea days, one in Canada two of them between Virginia and Florida, while the rest of the time we will be at port. Other stops include four locations in Canada, Bar Harbor, Boston, New York, Norfork, and Charleston.Hi Ray and Barbara,
