We are interested in sailing on the Splendor out of New York on April 8th. We have some concerns with the weather. I am wondering how far we have to sail south before we get to warm weather. Has anyone out there every left NY that early in the year?
Also, keep in mind that the Splendor of the Seas is relatively small (we've been on it twice and have spent a total of 50 days on the Vision-class ships) and sometimes the Atlantic can be a bit unforgiving. So don't be surprised if you enjoy some rocking and rolling.
But I always love sailing out of New York - totally cool cruising by the Statue of Liberty. Just too bad that Bayonne is not closer to it.
