Hi Can anyone tell me what the ride out to NZ from Melbourne will be like in Feb? I am hoping the water wont be too bumpy as i dont fancy getting seasick!:(

 

We just did NZ to Melbourne this February and the Tasman sea was smooth as glass. Others said it was bumpy. Maybe we just lucked out.

Well those seas are not that bad. I cruised from FTL. to south Caribbean and we were not able to get to port on day 3 due to high winds (40-50 knots) and sea swells that came up to deck 5, the promenade was closed due to swells and wind. I guess it is hit or miss when you book a cruise with regards to weather.

Hi Marice,

 

Remember when we did the Syd to LA two years ago? It was smooth as glass.

Maurice,

 

Thanks. (I think!!).

Some like it rough;).

 

To add some perspective. We've crossed the Tasman 7 times. Only 2 of those had high seas.

 

Cheers,

Steve.

Hi Steve

 

Seriously great pics! I have only crossed it twice and as Mike above says on Sapphire in 2007 it was like glass and then on Dawn last year is was very smooth.

 

I want a trip like yours on Volendam!

 

Maybe one day.

 

Maurice
