What's with all the cancellations???

Irma's size and apparent track have the hurricane covering the entire state of Florida coast to coast starting sometime late on Saturday, with peak coverage on Sunday midday, and not finishing passing through the state until late in the am Monday. With all the homeports in Fl, Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Cape Canaveral, Tampa, and Jacksonville, and most ships leaving on the weekend some on short 3-5 day itineraries, it's easier for the cruise lines to cancel cruises to keep the ships out at sea where they are safer than in dock. It may even be a bit of financial reasons as well since known cruises to nowhere leaving out of the USA were determined to be "illegal" about 2.5 years ago, and federal fines ensue per passenger if no foreign port is reached and it is currently unknown if any of the nearby island ports will be able to accept ships.

I see no Princess ship made the list. Hummm!  Maybe somebody in Corporate decided not worth the risk to cruise the Caribbean during hurricane season?
