I am planning to cruise from Glasgow to NY at the end of August (Golden Princess) and was curious to know what the weather on the Atlantic will be like for the last week in August. Will I be able to lounge on the balcony comfortably?
Looks like we're on the same cruise, embarking in Southampton on 8/20/05.
We've done one transatlantic before, and that one was also in August. On that cruise, temperatures were okay, but there was really too much wind to get much enjoyment out of our balcony. I don't think either one of us stayed out there for much longer than 5 or 10 minutes at a stretch. I guess we can pray for a "tailwind"! :-)
