Cruising During Hurricane Season

It is that time of the year. We are now in hurricane season. No one wants to consider cruising during a hurricane, but. What should you know about how your cruise might be affected in a hurricane? Prices naturally go down during hurricane season but is it worth the risk involved? Only you can answer that. So far I have been very lucky. Half of my cruises occur during hurricane season.

My dad was on the engineering team for the P-3 Orion sonar when he worked at Lochkeed way back when.

I will cruse during storm season, I did Caribbean cruise in early Oct one year for my B-day, we had one night where the ship was rocking. I thought it was fun, a bit more adventure. We got great price for the cruise with single occupancy cabins. we ended up in the first and second cabin all the way forward on deck 2.

If there is a bad storm the ship will change it's ports to keep the ship and guest safe. So as long as yoru OK with last minute change of ports, great time to cruise.

Cheaper rates?!my behind. My August trip cost 2700. Angry I do have a balcony but it's not cheapercheaper

OK, after sailing on mine sweepers in my Cadet days, I will take a cruise in rough weather just for sh*ts and Giggles....

I just hope and pray FEMA is ready to respond if we do have a bad season being we haven't confirmed the appointment of the new director yet! Makes me nervous ....

It is your money, you get to pick the time of the year to travel. The springtinme is a great time to travel.

Yes we do get to pick the time to travel, but are rather restricted with it because of our work policies. We really enjoy getting away after having dreary winter months.

As long as I have insurance I'm not going to really worry about it. If I miss the cruise, tthe insurance will cover everything and that money will just go towards the next cruise.

Been in a typhoon on a destroyer travelling with a carrier. Saw the bow if the carrier go under water and we had waves of green sea coming over us, so no storms for me

We always cruise after hurricane season ( unless we go to Alaska). Prices still are cheaper
