Hurricane Season


There are a lot of good deals to be had for cruise vacations in September.  There is a reason for that.  Hurricane season is June 1st through November 30th.  September has historically been the most active month for hurricanes coming in from the Atlantic Ocean.  This season is shaping up to be no different.  This past week we have seen hurricane Earl wreak havoc on cruise ship itineraries.  A lot of changes were made to many voyages.  Some went even so far as to change their entire route from the Eastern Caribbean to the Western Caribbean.  That’s something to remember when selecting your cruise vacation. You may get a great deal, but just remember to be flexible in case a hurricane ends up in the path of your chosen voyage.   Buying trip insurance is always a great idea, but in this case, it is up to the discretion of the cruise line to make decisions based on what will keep passengers safe and insurance will not cover changes in itineraries.   I have a co-worker that  actually missed one port and was kept out at sea on her ship for two extra days in 2003 because the port of Miami was closed.  Guess there are worse things than being stranded on a cruise ship safely away from a hurricane :)  Happy Sailing!
