We were on a Hawaii cruise in October. The only day we had rough seas was the second to last day coming back to the mainland. It was quite windy most days, however, but the weather was really nice.

We have done a HAL transpacific cruise in September. I suspect that the route taken will pretty much determine what the seas may be like. Our's was from Seattle to Petropavlovsk which took us through the Bering Sea and it was a bit rough at times but not unbearable.

We cruised to Samoa RT from LA in October weather was fine. @8 days at sea on Sapphire Princess with no major problems.

I've done a 19 day trans-Pacific from Los Angeles to Hong Kong and the only rough seas we had were the first two days out of LA.

What will be the temperature and cloud cover over your home in 4 weeks? Answering the question is about the same as trying to predict sea conditions or weather in the Pacific or just about anywhere else. The sea condition and weather questions always make me wonder about common sense. The reality is that you can never accurately predict those things more then a few weeks in advance. You could find many cruisers who would tell you about the wonderful weather they had when cruising between New York and Bermuda in early August. Yet one year DW and I hit a hurricane on this route and had seas in excess of 45 feet! So what does that prove?
