That cruise is actually going to be a CruiseMates Group Cruise. We are just getting the details sorted out before posting the announcement.

We're booked too! 568 days until we cruise. Time is going to dragggggggg by. Maybe I'll speed it up by pulling out our suitcases and practice packing. I'm sure DH will be doing major eye-rolls over this suggestion.

This will be our first trip to Europe and first transatlantic....and on a beautiful new ship. Can't get much better than that! Well....I guess it would be even better if I could speak a little Italian. I only know one word...."Gelato".

Not to be a damper, but is anyone worried about rough seas sailing the Atlantic in October?

I wouldn't say I'm worried, but I've thought about it. I've done enough Pacific cruises to know it can get rough.

I've done the fall transatlantic sailing several times. Of course, a storm can happen, but just like in the Caribbean, they know and do what they can to adjust their directions to avoid them.

On the ones we've done, we've perhaps been very lucky, and had smooth smooth seas. Once it was like a bathtub all the way across.

Coming across, you also have the bonus of 25 hr days during the crossing

Already booked . The only fly in the ointment will be the cost of air fare from the west coast.

Hello fellow BCer. We'll have to strategize together to see what we can find.
