I don't recall rough seas on a previous Baltic cruise out of Harwich (UK) or a Norway cruise out of Amsterdam. However, that doesn't mean there can't or won't be rough seas. Be prepared for the possibility with meds, wrist bands, ginger pills (whatever works for you) - just in case.

If DCL goes to Hawaii, I think it will be via two one-ways rather than a roundtrip from CA.
Just a reminder for those considering possible B2B itineraries:

If they do the one-ways of Vancouver - Honolulu and Honolulu - Vancouver (or Ensenada),
you will not be allowed to book B2B cruises that in combination result in starting in Honolulu and ending in another U.S. port (unless there's a DISTANT foreign port stop in there somewhere)

For example:
B2B2B Vancouver - Honolulu / Honolulu - Vancouver / Vancouver - Los Angeles would be permitted.

But....

B2B Honolulu - Vancouver / Vancouver - Los Angeles would not be permitted.

Likewise...

B2B Honolulu - Ensenada / Ensenada - Miami (via Panama Canal) would ONLY be permitted if it had the distant foreign port stop in there like Costa Rica or Colombia.
Ensenada - Miami on its own would not require a distant foreign port, though.

We had rough seas sailing back to Dover through the North Sea from the Baltic in 2010. It's not enough to deter me. Overall, I generally prefer it a bit warmer. It does get a bit chilly in the Baltic in the summer for me. However, after 3 summer trips in the Med, we're itching for a change. I'm very excited about sailing out of Copenhagen which was one of my favorite ports in 2010. We're debating between the fjord cruise and Iceland.

Norway in May sounds similar to weather on the Alaskan cruises.

https://weatherspark.com/averages/28...rdaland-Norway

Rough seas are determined by the weather -- stormy weather can make the waves much higher, but the ships have stabilizers on them, and that helps quite a bit. No way of predicting the storms you might encounter in May. I thought we might have rough seas when we cruised the Baltic but the water was smooth as glass.

I'm sure it varies quite a bit. I remember getting on the ship in Dover and it being chilly on deck - light jacket weather. But the days we were in Berlin and St Peterburg were very hot.

Depends on your definition of much more. I'd expect them to be more. We'll see.

When they do announce-and if platinum/gold get to book early-how will we know what options there are? We just have to call and ask? Or will they have the full slate on the website without the ability to book?

If it's not on the DCL web site, you'll find all the info here on the DIS, along with comparisons to past cruise prices.

DCL might post everything on the DCL web site but gold and platinum will have to phone in to make reservations before DCL opens up the bookings to everyone.

Hm. Just checked DCL website. They said they will be closing the sight down for scheduled maintenance in about an hour. Think that means anything?

Nope. Happens every night at around that time. It's prime time evening time here in Australia at that time, and I run across it frequently

Thanks. Kinda was hoping it'd be on DCL so I could see all the options officially. :/

Sometimes the information that is on here is more "official" than on the actual DCL website. They don't seem to update their site as they should and we seem to know changes that are happening on the ships on here before they change their info on the site.
