heavy waves around Iceland?


Recommended Posts

Hurricanes that skirt the east coast of the US sometimes end up reaching Iceland.

 

Probably 1/4 to 1/3 the chance of NYC having heavy waves.

 

I wouldn't cruise to Iceland because Iceland is so easy to do on your own and much more fun to see with just a very small group than with a whole cruiseship full of people

Viking Ocean is cruising now. Nobody has reported any bad conditions.  And it's (gasp!) been very sunny for the past week and a half!  But of course, things could change!

The last week and a half's weather has absolutely nothing to do with the next week's or the next month's weather.

On the 2019 Voyage of the Vikings we had heavy seas returning from Norway to Iceland -- lots of dishes went crashing in the Lido. About like a typhoon we skirted between Japan and China once. Just part of cruising, imho. I've never been concerned for my safety.

Bingo.  It snowed heavily in about half the country in Mid-June (last month) and that "never happens".  And last week folks were wearing shorts, which is also rare.
