Default Transatlantic repositioning cruise

We are thinking of taking a transatlantic repositioning cruise from Barcelona to Ft. Lauderdale in October.
Any feed back would be appreciated. Are the seas any rougher than normal ? How is the weather ? Is it usually sunny and warm enough for outdoor pooling and hot tubs ?

Thanks,
David

We have done 4 of these fall transatlantics and the weather has been great. But weather can vary and even a day difference in sailing can make a difference between sunny weather and a rainy crossing.
We did one Barcelona to Ft Lauderdale crossing in Sept 2001, one in Oct 2003, one in Nov 2005, and one in Dec 2007. All had great weather and smooth seas but the warmest was the Dec 2007 crossing.
On one of the transatlantics, another ship from the same cruisline left Barcelona the day before us and had rainy weather. We had sun with rain only twice - both times during the night.

Hi David:

We sailed on X from Barcelona to Florida last September. We did a pre-cruise in Barcelona for 4 nights and our TA had stops in Malaga, Seville, Morocco, Lisbon and Ponte Delgada.

The weather was gorgeous the entire cruise. The swells were high one night. I remember ordering cabin service and after hearing a vase fall in the foyer, called to cancel. With the exception of one rough night, the entire cruise was mid 70's to low 90's. Yes, the pools and facilities were open the entire cruise.

The crossing portion took 6-days and the seas were very mild as well, it was nice. Usually we feel and enjoy the rocking of the ship as it puts many to sleep, but on this cruise it really didn't rock all that much.

If you are interested in learning more about the excursions, hotels or places to visit in Barcelona, PM me and I'll be happy to share.

Sounds like you have a great cruise picked out!!
