Default Transatlantic May 1

Considering booking cruise from Miami to Lisbon the first week of May. I know weather is always changing but any information on the typical weather and seas to expect would be helpful. Thanks for the help!

Our April/May Florida -> Southern Europe cruises in 91, 96, 00, 02, 03 and 04 were all pretty calm.

No idea if it was typical, but our May 04 Transatlantic sailing from Fl to Europe the seas were like a bathtub, and the temps were delightfully warm.

The rough crossings are the North Atlantic: New York, Boston to Europe.
I've sailed Ft. Lauderdale to Europe and had days when the ocean was like a lake. So, don't expect the worst. However, if you don't have your sea legs, you might want to check out the patch, available by prescription. Ask your doctor and note....there are side effects.

But personally, I think you can expect a lovely crossing.
