Cabin location for a westbound transatlantic in November

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

This will be our first westbound transatlantic cruise (Rome to New York in November).  I am looking for opinions and advice on the best cabin location, port or starboard for sun/warmth (if any) and little wind.

 

I've googled and searched with no luck, so I'm hoping someone here can help.

 

Thanks.

The sun will be to your south, so you want a port cabin/balcony, though it may be a bit chilly to sit out on the balcony.  EM

There will be wind, no matter WHICH side you're on.  Going westbound, the sun is strongest on the starboard (right) side.

She's got it backward.  Westbound occurs in Fall, sun in south, on port side.  I've done Barcelona to NY in Nov.  Peruse the boards long enough and you will learn how much credence to give to posts by cb.  EM

Also, someone who has no passport (by her own admission) and only cruises to the Caribbean, obviously has never taken a transatlantic voyage of any sort and should not be offering  any advice on them.   Personal experience,  CB.
