Just got back form the 1/29 Sensation cruise and the seas were not to bad...there were times you could feel the boat moving....(.or maybe that was those " drinks of the day " !!!!)
But no it was fine..certainly did not put me off going again..
We were on the Conquest, next to the Victory at Grand Cayman last Thursday and the seas were flat, which made for easy tendering. On the trip out and back, through the Gulf, the seas were running about 6 ft. from the northwest, but you could barely detect any motion. The Caribbean portion was fairly calm throughout. No worries.
With the Canadian cold fronts coming all the way down this year it has been cold and bad weather - it even snowed on Christmas in Houston - hasn't happened in 15 years. SOOO the Gulf of Mexico can get very rough with the fronts coming through - it is not like going out of Florida and being in the ocean or Caribbean Sea. If going out of New Orleans or Galveston or Mobile AL it can be rough depending on the weather. Debbie
