Default Are the seas calm in the Pacific in February?

There is a group of about 20 people who regularly cruise every other year. We are now in the process of looking at a cruise for February 2007. We have never cruised the Pacific and we're looking at the Princess cruise out of LA to PV, Mazatland and one other island. I was talking with someone about this and they cautioned me, saying that the ocean was very choppy. I know we would be on a good sized ship, but some people in the party have a real problem with excessive movement while cruising. Can someone shed some lite on this subject for us. Much appreciated.

We sailed Feb 1st on this itinirary a couple years back and had no problems at all. The last day at sea back, the ship is going fast, and that's when I experienced the most movement, but I just took 2 Bonine that day. Otherwise, very smooth.

P.S. The Diamond/Sapphire are *wonderful* ships!

I have done 17 Mexican Riviera cruises. The last on the Sapphire in December. The next in April 2006 on the Mercury. I guarantee the last day back wil be fairly rough. Bring a patch.

Why, the ship speeds back to port and hits the current and head winds.
