Sapphire Princess to Hawaii in January!
would appreciate any information re weather, ocean temperament this time of year--can we use outdoor pools enroute to Hawaii or too cold? I have never gotten seasick but might this be a first? how bad can it be?

It will most likely be a little cool (high 50's--low 60's) the first couple of days out and the last couple back, but gradually warming as you near the Islands. You might prefer the covered pool on these days; but the rest of the trip will be quite nice.

Also, the first day or two could be a little rough--I say "could be" because it could also be smooth as glass all the way across. If you've never been seasick before I wouldn't worry about it on this cruise. But if it should happen, there are remedies available from the Medical Center and the shops.

Welcome to To add to the seasickness advice, I find that ginger or green apples work well. In fact, I used the green apple remedy just a few weeks ago when I went on a small boat (a 20-footer) in windy conditions. Cruise ships are so large that this is not usually an issue, thankfully.

Thanks for the info. Will keep your suggestions in mind.
