Default Europe in early Sept.

Just booked the Carnival Legend Trans Atlantic crossing in Sept. Question, how is the weather? No shorts or swimsuits on this cruise I expect. Jeans and sweatshirts ok? We go to Paris, Ireland, Scotland, Iceland and Newfoundland.
Thanks for your help.
Vicki

Hello Vicki,
Left Pam this same message in "Ask the CM Staff"

First, congratulations on booking a great Transatlantic cruise.There are several
CruiseMates chat hosts that are booked for this cruise also, myself (Y2C),
Host Cher, Robocop and Mike Mastell with our spouses.

We plan on going in early to see the London sights prior to boarding on Sept
5. As for weather, not sure but will know when it gets closer. I have a friend in
New Castle, England and plan on picking his brain for many details prior to the
cruise, weather, packing tips as you mentioned. As for shore excursions
research has begun and will intensify many months before Sept 5.

Come join chat each night Monday through Friday, 9 PM to 11 PM Eastern
Standard Time

Click on (Author) Y2C for my e-mail.

Keep in touch, we are in this together for one fine cruise.

You may also wish to post any questions on Chit-Chat.

Just wanted to add my name to the list of cruising the Legend on September 5th. A first-timer on Carnival and overseas too! What is everybody doing for air? Coming out of the SFO area and any thoughts and ideas would be greatly appreciated. Looking forward to what appears to be a fabulous cruise with some great people.

Hi Suzy,
To answer your question about air to London we are on hold.
The TA we are using will search for airfare. At present the cruise line is asking around $1000 p/p from the LAX area. A little stiff.

I booked for the Legend Transatlantic right when it was announced in early September. Was told I got the last cabin with a balcony and have read some other message boards saying they heard it was 'sold out'. Surprised to see you were still able to book but am happy for you.

I just read a 'translantic' review on the Cruise Addicts site for the Royal Carribean Vision. It was a new review by Paul Beighley but for a cruise in 1998. He talks about very cold weather, waves 50-60 feet tall and winds 60-80 mph. Everything was tied down and you couldn't go out on deck.

This sounds atypical but has me questioning if I really want to take this cruise. Would sure appreciate any info from some others who have taken a transatlantic on the northern route in September.

Flo,
That sure doesn't sound like a warn weather cruise does it. We will be sure to take sweatshirts and warm coats. Took all of that to Alaska the end of May two years ago and did not use it. So perhaps we will be lucky. I guess Carnival is releasing some cabins they had on hold, that is how people are booking at this late date. Let me know if you hear anything else about the weather.
Thanks again,
Vicki

Jeans and sweatshirts will be fine for Scotland in Sept, be sure to bring a rain jacket as we can get showers. It can also be cold in the evening, be sure to see Edinburgh if you like history, castles etc or Loch Lomond for beautiful scenery. Enjoy!!!

I did a transatlantic last May to Europe. I had such a great time that I'm saling on the Legend in Sept. The weather was in the 50's. I wore a lightweight jacket, cotton pants and long sleeve tops. Also, I plan to bring an umbrella. What I packed and did not use were shorts and sleveeless tops.

We've gone in Oct a couple of times. Traditional fall weather. Although in Oct. 1990, it was warm 70's. Have been to Ireland in the spring - cold and rainy. I'd plan for that. Take some warm sweaters and stuff for layering.
