Happy Anniversary Happy2cruise. We too were looking at the Pacific Princess for September (our Anniversary, too). Sept. sailing out of the Northeast is usually still beautiful seas and daytime weather. You just have the "threat" of a hurricane. When we did our Panama Canal cruise 10/27 to 11/8 (late in the hurrican season) we sailed out of San Juan and into Acapulco and it was almost perfect weather. The very next sailing (11/8 to 11/20) in reverse, they encountered a Hurricane which would not move from the Caribbean Islands (St. Martin, St. Thomas, San Juan), and they actually had to disembark passengers for the return trip home from Arudba. You never know. We won't be joining you but do let me know how you liked the Pacific. I have never been on an older ship, but this one interests me. Maybe because she is being pulled out of this area in 2002.
