Default What's the weather like out on the sea?

My sister mentioned it could be a little cool while outside on the ship. We'll be doing Cozumel/Grand Cayman this November, can I expect warm weather out on the sea? Is it extra windy on the boat? Only cool at night? Is it cooler out at sea than at the ports?

Bring a sweater along..It can be breezy at night,and sometimes trying to open an ourside door will need muscles We could not leave Cozumel last November on the Epic, as the seas, and, wind would not allow our ship our of the harbor safely. As we disembarked, the water was going over the long walkway off the ship. Other times it has been like glass..just depends.

Sometimes the first day leaving port can be a little chilly, depends on the time of year, but it normally warms during the first sea day as you head further south.

Like Trip said, evenings can be a little cool with the wind blowing.

Happy Sailing
Tim

The weather at sea is just like the weather at the beach - but without the beach.

Just like at the beach, it's only windy when the wind is blowing.

a light sweater is always a good idea, especially at night. There is always a sea breeze out at sea, you are on a moving vessel. Cozumel and Cayman can be HOT during the day, plan water/beach activities

How else can one answer that question besides the weather is whatever nature plans it to be? It's not hard to pack a sweater just in case. If it's too cool or windy, just go inside!

If you are on a deck that is open to the air there may be a breeze equivalent to the speed of the ship. There are also plenty of open decks that are sheltered from the wind.

I apologize for being completely clueless as I've never been on a ship, been out of the country, or been anywhere in the world below Georgia. If I have less common sense than some of you, ah well. Thank you for those patient enough with me to help me the best you can.
