 Well, SUMMER IS HERE , grass goes brown, water restrictions phase 1 still in place. Weather is now in the mid 20’s C and folks off the Rhapsody of the Seas in port today are wearing sun hats, shorts and sandals. Will continue at least into end of next week.

July 4, 2010
Well we just celebrated Canada Day on July 1, 2010 and the Queen and Prince Philip were in Ottawa to help us celebrate.

They also were in Halifax to commemorate the Canadian Navy’s Centennial (100 years).

Our weather though for those on a cruise to Alaska was in the cool side with temperatures running around 12C (53F) to 20C (68F) at times. Not our average warm Spring or Summer but the good news is that July is looking to be in the mid 20’s C (68F – 75F).

So for some folks looks like they were being prepared for Alaska type weather but overall it is still nice but cool and overcast at times or breaks of sun.

On the other side of the world (Zante, Greece) see picture ….., look at Tina’s Cruising to see where she is taking her holiday.

now that must be true summer weather. Air fare for some of us though would be expensive.

Cheers

  1. Great info. Thank you!To be honest, we really look very much forward to our cruise in not even 1 month time from Amsterdam (The Netherlands) to North & South Iceland and Western Greenland (Disco-Bay, Ilulissat) and the more than moderate temperatures of approx. +10°C – comparing to a real summer weater now here with sometimes +30°C even up to +36°C and we are far from being as south as Greece here in Southern Germany at the Swiss boarder – even though we mostly have the warmer weather comparing to Hamburg (North Sea) or Kiel (East Sea). Average summertime here is approx. +25°C. Enjoy your summer there 🙂 Best regards!
