NYC to Bermuda cruise crossing weather conditions in May?
We have a party of 6 senior adults cruising from NYC to Bermuda on 17 May on the NCL Dawn. Two of the ladies are a bit susceptible to seasickness. Can anyone advise us on how rough the typical maritime crossing conditions might be in this timeframe?? And best suggestions to deal with the seasickness if encountered?
I used to work with a woman, who sailed from Boston to Bermuda quite a bit, on the NCL Majesty. I don't remember what time frame she sailed, sorry, but I do remember her coming back from different cruises, saying the seas were like glass, and other times the ship had set out barf bags all over, due to the rough seas. I would tell them to take precautions, with seasickness remedies, or the patch, just in case.
Trip, with her book & tea!

We made the crossing from NYC to Bermuda in late May. We had a couple of rough days; one each way. This was first cruise for my MIL, she did fine. Many people swear by the wrist bands (my mother included). For others, just taking a bonine will help.
