Default weather in the atlantic?

I am sailing on the Dawn in April and I have been hearing an awful lot about rocky sailing and its getting me a little scared. I have only sailed from Fla. ports, so I guess my question is, is the atlantic rougher sailing than the caribbean? Or is it different depending on the time of year you sail? .........April 25th on the Dawn......

The answer to your question is normally yes the Atlantic can be rougher. But the roughest part of your cruise will be embarkation in NYC. Both the QE2 and the QM2 will be in the city that day. Alow for extra time getting into the pier.

That said I just returned from 10 days on the Dawn (my third cruise on the Dawn) and she is very stable in rough seas. We had calm seas in the Atlantic and a wonderful cruise. The only rough seas were heading south from Antigua to Barbados with 18 ft seas and 45 knot winds - go figure.

NM,just keep a look on weather channel.com for any bad weather on the east coast,if there is a snow storm going up the coast you may hit a storm.We have sailed out of NY 6 times.you may hit a little rough going out of the harbor because when you come down the river into the Alantic you hit 3 rivers all hitting the alantic so you may feel the currentsfor about 2 hours.

Springtime tends to bring rougher waters in the Atlantic. Lots of storms come up from the south during the spring months. We went in mid-May and the seas were very rough and there were no storms.
