I was wondering if we can anticipate rough seas to Hawaii from Mexico in Sept ? We chose a aft cabin and now are concerned if we should be more mid ship because of the waters? Thanks for any help...

September is hurricane season in the Pacific. I have never sailed there but noticed a large amount of storms on the weather map last year. In fact alot more storms than in the Gulf or Atlantic. I was told that the Pacific usually has rougher seas than the Atlantic.
I have found that the cabins in the aft tend to have less movement than the foward. I have also found the lower decks and of course larger ships are calmer too.

Personaly, I wouldn't give up an aft cabin. Chances are you won't have rough seas. If the sea are higher, you'll feel movement no matter where your cabin is located. The larger balcony is a BIG plus.

We didn't go that time of the year to Hawaii, but I just want to say, "hopefully" you will enjoy your trip. We went in January (Hawaii is known for little rain at a time.), and it decided to "rain on our parade." When I say rain, I mean gushers. If the wind wasn't blowing where you could not get in/out of the cruise doors, unless someone pulled on the other side, or when we were on land, we were walking in 2 - 3" of rain.

Enjoy your trip We didn't.

Steve and Karen,
My wife Lisa and I are on the same ship. Have you gotten any more information on the rough seas from anywhere else? I am worried as well!

Look up the word Pacific in your dictionary. Even the word means peaceful and calm. The name came from early sea explorers who found it remarkably smooth and tranquil once out to sea. You should have no worries. Enjoy your cruise!

Happy sailing, Neil

I don't know if you are referring to the Serenade of the Seas or another ship, but a little over a week ago, we just got off. To say the least the ship was very smooth. The only time I noticed (I think I was the only one as I have a few problems) a little movement was a dinner one night, but it only lasted about 10 minutes.

We were in the Crown & Anchor area, and a question came up about the movement of the ship, asking the captain. He said this ship was very well balanced at the bottom (I could tell), so there would be very little or no movement that a person could detect.
