Have not sailed from Boston in the fall,only the summer....and have not been on the jewel although I am really looking forward to it...as far as rough seas goes,maybe just the first night and that is what I pack Dramamine for
We took the Jewel out of Boston last October... This was our first cooler weather cruise. The ship is incredibly beautiful. As far as rough seas goes this was our experience....
Leaving Boston harbor was very calm. A few days into the trip a hurricane from down South came up the cost and caused some rough sees when we were up in Nova Scotia. One night was really "interesting"... Luckily, my wife and I weren't really affected. But many were not up to par that night.
If it were not for that one storm the trip would have been very smooth. The ship stabilizers really do a great job...
Good luck and getting good weather.

We will be on the 10/12 sailing. This is our ninth cruise..third out of Boston...Last October we cruised on Voyager out of Port Liberty NJ. The first and second night out it was pretty rough. The rest of the cruise was smooth. We got to watch the Red Sox win the World Series while docked in Aruba and got to harass many Yankee fans that were on this cruise watching with us. We flew home from Miami so didnt get to experience the North Atlantic on the return. Fortunately we never got sick on a cruise..When we returned home however I had vertigo when I went to lay down for almost six weeks after. Didn't feel anything on the ship just when I layed down after returning home. Room spinning stuff. It never happened after any other cruise. Must have been the rough 2 nights we had leaving NJ it got my inner ear balance messed up. We are looking forward to this trip and hope you have a great cruise. Perhaps Ill see you at the blackjack table.
Hey Archie...We are traveling with my business partner and his wife and another couple..Our 3 kids are all in college so they wont be coming. I look forward to meeting you in the casino..Ill be the one with all the chips in front of me and the Patriots hat on..
We will be on this sailing. We (wife and I) are late 30's/early 40's. This will be for our 10th Anniversary and this will also be our 10th cruise. 1st out of Boston though and the first time we've sailed with Royal since 1997.
