I am thinking of a cruise to Hawaii in 06, first how is the pacific in January, and your opinion on cruising from L.A.,which takes 4 days to Hawaii and 4 days back.

Boy, you're in luck -- that's when a Cruisemates cruise on the Island Princess is set -- for Jan. 6th. We already have a group of nearly 70 on board. Rates are great!

Here are details:

I haven't sailed from LA to Hawaii before.... though I will be (and very much looking forward to it) in Jan.

Before I started cruising, I used to land vacation in Hawaii every Jan. for about 9 years. Almost always had great weather, and perfect beach days.

We're scheduled on the Cruise Mates cruise R/T to Hawaii on Jan 6th. Coming from Minneapolis, I much prefer going to Hawaii in Jan than June. I would also expect that if you have any desire to see whales, Jan would be great. We did a NCL cruise R/T from Honolulu a few years ago, in early Dec. That was at the very beginning of the whale season in Maui.

I would also doubt that it would be cold in Hawaii in Jan and if it is cold in LA then I do believe the ship has heaters on board?

We are also going in March. We are booked on Celebrity and chose March because we thought it would be maybe just a little bit weather sailing out of LA. Hawii is supposed to be beautiful all year round. Which line are you taking?

Because we'll be sailing on the Summit on Jan. 15 r/t LA, I kept an eye on the weather report for Honolulu for January 2005. The weather was in the high 70s to low 80s. It will be cool sailing to and from Hawaii, but what the heck.......enjoy.

Hi Lombard,

How cold is it in L.A. in January??? I live in Montreal...for us, when we say "cold" it's because the snow is there...minus something???

Hi Lili,

We sailed from LA on January 16th of this year. We are from NY and thought the weather was sunny and nice. The day was about 72 degrees.
This was just after some heavy rains in Southern LA had stopped, so we were very lucky!

Good Luck to you!
Carolyn B.

Our January weather is usually mid to high 60s, with occasional low 70s. Actually, it's usually a very sunny time of the year.

Our rain month is March. May and June, we get a lot of night and morning low clouds, which burn off in the afternoon.

Harry

Haven't cruised Hawaii in October - but we land vacation there every other year in October. Have done Maui, Kauai and now our favorite island, the Big Island. October is perfect. Weather is great high 70's to mid 80's during the day. Low 70's in the evenings. Lesss people than in summer - most kids are in school. It's a great time of year to be there. We will be there again this year and next year we will be doing the 15 day Princess cruise round trip from L.A. - in September.

How is December? I'm assuming it's just like January weather.

I don't care about the temps, just don't want to run into any hurricanes and I know the season is over in December.

If you are a seasoned cruiser and enjoy being at sea that long than you will be ok. The seas are rougher than some other times of the year. I would not recommend it for a novice cruiser and one who gets queezy easily.

We have a number of clients who enjoyed it and some who hated it. THe ones who enjoyed it seemed to be older who love to be on the ship for the ship experience. THe younger ones tend to have the itch to get off the ship after 3 days on it.

Bottom line: the seas will be a little rougher, but that is not the main concern. Will you be able to survive 8 days sailing without land?

Hope that helps

Sailing on Infinity to Hawaii in October and have heard weather should be cool between San Diego and the islands. How cool is cool?

The weather and the water in Hawaii are warm year round. It probably only varies about 10 degress between summer and winter. If cruising in the winter, I would be inclined I think to fly to Honolulu and cruise from there. It also gives you the option of a pre and/or post cruise stay on the island or islands of your choice.
