I just had the same experience on my HAL cruise (end of September) -- we sailed from Athens through the Aegean to Istanbul and then all down the Turkish coast. The sea was like a lake; hardly a ripple to be seen.
Exactly ... it was almost eerie how calm and smooth the sea was. Mind you, I'm not complaining. But, sometimes I actually enjoy a little motion of the ship while we're sleeping!!
