Have you ever had the chance before to compare the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea?
This was my first trip on the Mediterranean and every time I went up to the deck on our cruise, the ocean was choppy, dark blue with white foam everywhere you look. The winds were so strong that it felt like a small hurricane was on board. At night almost anybody was visiting the 13th and 14th floor. It was empty and the fence-rail around the top floors (13th and 14th floor) was covered by white dust (salt). The water mist was able to rich so high up because of the intense winds. One night Jorge and me went up stairs to the top floors after dinner. I had a black jacket/sweater on. After spending some time trying to not be blown away by the wind, I noticed that the white dust was changing my sweater’s color. Then we decided to better walk in the inside of the cruise.
This was very interesting to me, the cruises that I took before through the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean, the ocean looks like a purple blue and the waves are bigger and soft at the same time, or basically calm comparing to the mediterranean. The winds were not that intense.
Every time we were getting closer to a port the waters started to smooth down a litter bit for a more calm “look”.
Have you traveled on the Pacific Ocean or any other ocean? I would love to know how different is cruising in other oceans and seas.
