Hello - I will be in Sydney and Halifax in October of this year and have checked the temperature averages (looks about 60 or so), but with the temp always dropping when you are by water, should I expect it to be downright cold? Will I need to "bundle up", when I go for my excursions or even when I am on the ships outside decks?
What about at night? Will the temps drop dramatically?
Thanks for all your help!

Carey, if you're used to 80* (or think 60* is cold) you'll want to have something warm to wear. It will be colder on the water in October. If it rains or the wind blows it will feel bone-chilling cold. A polar fleece pullover or jacket, gloves and a hat are good ideas. Dress in layers so if you get warm you can take something off. Out on deck at night it could feel very cold if the temp drops into the 40's and you're in the wind. Better to have it and not need it, than need it and not have it.
Thanks, I too will be on a Canada/New England cruise October 11 and living in Miami, I want to make sure I pack some warm clothes.
Despite the fact that I used to live in NY, my blood has thinned out and I feel the cold even at 60 degrees.
Can't wait for this cruise.
