Default RCI Western Mediterranean Cruise


I am thinking of booking Royal Caribbean's 7 day western Mediterranean cruise (Rome/Civitavecchia, Naples, Valletta, Barcelona, Villefranche-Sur-Mer, Livorno) for my mother and I. However, my mother tends to get seasick. Does anyone know how rough the waters on this trip would be? Any other practical advice on this trip would be helpful.

Thank you.

Hi, Pam ...

(Nice name you've got there, by the way ...)

Just load Mom up with Bonine

And I'd certainly recommend a balcony cabin if she's prone to motion sickness.

Nobody can predict the weather or the seas ANYWHERE that I know of but can't recall a cruise review complaining of bad weather during a summer Med cruise. There probably are some, I just haven't read them.

My main practical suggestion is to look, if at all possible, at a slightly longer itinerary. What you're exploring is VERY port-intensive with long flights on both ends. Are pre- and post-cruise days a possibility?

If I can help in any other way, just ask.

We are booked on that cruise for next June. No matter what the seas are like, I always take Bonine at least for the first day. The ship will be docked most of the time anyway.

Have fun.

We just returned from this cruise on the Legend in May. The weather was beautiful and the waters were calm. Did not know of anyone experiencing sea sickness.

Hope you enjoy.
