We are sailing mid-May. Does anyone know what the night time weather is like on the ship? Are sweatshirts needed? pants instead of shorts? long sleeves rather than short sleeves?

On my four April cruises, I needed a sweater at night out on the verandah or the open decks. Hope this helps.

I haven't sailed Mid may, but last year we sailed the end of april to May. It depends on what type of a person you are. I am a cold person (temperature wise, not personality:crazy: ), so I found it a little chilly at nights (especially in the airconditioned movie theatre etc...)

My suggestion, bring a sweater or two, and a pair of pants. Better to have them then to be cold, right?

From my experience...It will be cool in the evenings INDOORS. The airconditioning is usually cranked up pretty high (I prefer it that way, rather be chilly than hot and stuffy in the dining rooms & theaters). OUTSIDE should be about 70-75 degrees (depending on Mother nature, You just never know), and generally windy as all get out! I love taking a stroll out on the deck at night. It is usually humid though. It will be a shock to go from the AC out to the humidity, but not unpleasant (and vice versa). Actually the smell of the sea at night when you open up the doors to go out is wonderful and something that I look forward to on every cruise!

So, if 70 degrees is chilly for you (I'm from WI, that's a sauna right now!) than you should be prepared with a sweater or sweatshirt or shawl. I generally take one little over the shoulder something or other for the AC in the evenings.
