Jim_Iain Live Blog - Infinity B2B - Carribbean and East Bound TA

Recommended Posts

It is time to hit the seas again and we are so in need of a cruise.   While we don't suffer from severe cold winters like many, it has been a very wet but mild El Nino winter in Northern California.   

 

We initially booked the TA cruise from Fort Lauderdale to Barcelona, but ended up adding on a short 5 day Caribbean prior to the crossing.   While we don't leave for 3 days, I thought I would start getting the blog started.   Please feel free to jump in also ask questions.    I will try to fulfill all requests.

 

First up is the Itineraries -

Have a fabulous cruise! We are doing the crossing back from Rome on the Infinity in October. We have never done a transatlantic so looking forward to it. I have no idea what kind of weather to expect, much less anything else! 😂. We managed to snag a corner family aft veranda for the 2 of us so should be a good time!

It’s a pity you’re not staying on for the first Mediterranean cruise as we are on that. Wishing you a calm crossing.

I'm sure you will have a wonderful cruise.   We have done many TA's and your itinerary is one of the best.    It will be moderate in temperature while in the Caribbean (65-75 F).    Once you get down to the Canary Islands weather will warm up and most of the time the southern crossing is Hawaii type weather and usually smooth as a pond.   Having said that weather is unpredictable and you could also get a storm or high seas.

Looking forward to following along with you, we’ve got a cruise on the Reflection in January and recently added a 5 night infinity cruise before it so really interested to here about the infinity from your time onboard, 

 

hope you have a great crossing and a fantastic 19 night cruise, very very jealous indeed, 

 

cheers 🍸👍🏻

We have done some TA's  in Dec. and the sea was like glass...on others we have had up to 40 ft swells....either way you'll enjoy it

Have a wonderful voyage!  We've only done one TA and we loved it, despite north Atlantic storms requiring a change of itinerary and high seas.

Oh, good! another  Jim _Ian blog! I will be following eagerly. I was so amazed  by your transpacific blog that we booked the same cruise for this September. We had never considered  a transpacific, but you guys seemed to have had such fun (dispute the two typhoons you experienced) that we are going to try it. I hope you have a great cruise.

Thanks.   I'm hoping for a nice smooth cruise.    Last October/November we were hit with 2 typhoons and 1 hurricane on 3 cruises.    We still had a wonderful time but hoping for a nice smooth warm crossing.
