But Dress Rosa must be in the new world, right? About S.A.D. Tanker, is not some kind of ship? I interpreted so that chapter. So, it could be anywhere.

A tanker is indeed a type of ship, one used for transporting bulk liquid (an oil tanker, for example). They are usually massive ships, though that is not a class requirement. An S.A.D. Tanker would be a ship that S.A.D. uses to transport some sort of liquid. As Punk Hazard is a facility used to develop chemical weapons, we can assume that the tanker was transporting chemicals that are stored in a liquid state (ammonia, chlorine, various hydrocarbons, etc). S.A.D. could well be the organization supplying Caesar with raw materials, brokered by Doflamingo. That would explain why Vergo, a Vice-Admiral and well known figure, would feel comfortable hitching a ride with them too a forbidden island and location of illegal activity.
In theory Dress Rosa could be anywhere. If the Strawhats are to travel there I assume it will be in the New World, for the sake of plot expediency. The Blues and Paradise are far enough away that traveling there would draw the Strawhats to far from the stories primary setting.

I'm still sure that the Straw Hats will travel to the Wano country after this acr, you see Luffy and the gang are new in the New World, so there a strong possibilities that they will follow the Post and route they took instead of going off track, and since they don't know where Rosa dress is located, if the route brings them their, then that where they will go. (It's all up to Oda)
Now that I back tracked in the chapter, on chapter 661: http://www.mangahere.com/manga/one_p...0/c661/16.html Law has a ability that could steal/take his enemies weapons, values and transmittance snails. With his "Scan" ability Law can look at and take whatever he wants without much trouble. Law can easily take his heart back and even smoker's if Luffy begs enough. (meaning that Smoker ol' Luffy, so letting them go and saving the children sounds like a good deal to me huuhh?)
Now would be the perfect time for
Mr.Mrs.Prince to appear, to mix things up and add one more allusion to the Alabasta Saga.

You also seem to misunderstand how navigation in the New World works. The fixed path of Paradise is now gone. This all should have been made clear here, a chapter I highly recommend rereading before continuing this discussion. It should be obvious that the Strawhats will not be taking the safest route, but will instead follow the needle pointing towards the most dangerous location. Taking life's safest, most prudent path is hardly the moral One Piece is meant to impart.
one- How will Kinemon maybe even Momonosuke get home? I feel that Luffy don't care going off track from "the most dangerous location's route" if it's to help a friend out. Also wouldn't the Wano country that doesn't like pirates, Marines alike be considered a dangerous location with such military force station there? Even if Kinemon tell them not to go because Wano people don't warm welcome Pirates and that the people there are too strong, wouldn't Luffy just get excited and want to go more so?
two- Simply said, If they go to the most dangerous route, then I will assume that the 3 routes they can go now is: Dress rosa, The island with the missing children, and Wano country. (these are just thoughts of mines that's coming next) Dress Rosa is most likely where Doflamingo is located so if that true, then maybe Luffy should wait to he return Kinemon back to his country because as of now he really has no reason to face Doflamingo. About that island with the mssing children, Smoker is already station there, so him return the children should not be much of a problem. Last we have is Wano, as we know now is a Bada** country that doesn't need the help of anybody other then themself, strong self made people, saying that the Wano country not dangerous enough to be the most dangerous route nearest to PH is a understatement, Dress Rosa might be showed more dangerous, but Doflamingo seem to enjoy peaceful places, so I'm not sure myself.
It's all up to Oda

I can see, Zoro going to Wano country, but not the whole entire crew. Oda could separate them again, after they reunite to take down CC.
I think the parallelisms as entertaining as they can be, may get a bit obvious, or even too revealing of the plot, we know since the whales, Laboon that we will see a parallel Paradise for the New World, but it may get tricky, though it is an Odaesque technique of the highest order, I do not want him pushing it that much.

I just noticed but Most the straw hats that you couldn't recognize or change wanted posters was change; http://www.mangahere.com/manga/one_p...0/c662/12.html That's a good even for usopp
"how many years has it been? You've grown up Law."
"I was in Dress Rosa, you see. An S.A.D. Tanker was leaving, so I rode it here..."
... associated in a way that lead you to think that when Wergo and Law were together, years ago, they were in Dress Rosa. But that doesn't have to be the case. They could be together, years ago, in a whole different place. On the other hand, we can assume that Wergo knows that Law knows about Dress Rosa, since he also knows that Law knows about Joker aka Doflamingo and about the organization (Wergo knows that Law asked CC not to tell Joker about him in PH). That is why he talked to Law, assuming that he knows what is Dress Rosa and what is an S.A.D Tanker.
Now, Wergo's whole line goes:
"Mere moments ago, I was in Dress Rosa, you see. An S.A.D. Tanker was leaving, so I rode it here..."
Since mere moment ago Wergo was in Dress Rosa, or Dress Rosa is really close to PH, or S.A.D Tanker is a very fast ship. But, since Wergo takes time to talk about the ship used in the travel, maybe ship's speed deserves the note.
But, yes, for the sake of current plot, Dress Rosa have to be in the New World.
I hope it helps. .
Well, maybe there's some hidden wish from me for Luffy & Co. take a little detour through the Calm Belt to North Blue and back... Seems like I really mistook something here. Doflamingo's "rosa" feather boa is just too misleading... ^_^;

Regarding the S.A.D Tanker, I'm with Kaiten on this, it is most likely a giant ship. I believe the ship is needed to transport smiley. I assume CC requested for that ship and Vergo just rode along, due to the events on PH.
About Dresrosa; there is no question about that. It is definitely in the new world, be it a base, island or whatever. Most likely within the G-5 area. Heck, it could be also the name of G-5 outpost, who knows.

yeah, I forgot, Oda had already separated them during their trip to Fishman Island. And then after they landed on Fishman Island and now after that, they arrive on Punk Hazard and got separated again.
I wasn't sure if, Oda was doing this on purpose or if there was a pattern here that would lead to something major and big in the long run. At least, would still like more infor on Wano country. Maybe the warriors there will help the Strawhats out in the near future for a serious battle.
p.s., I'm still waiting for the epic battle between "Luffy" and "Captain Kidd".
