Future Cruise Decisions

When an area has been hit hard by storms or hurricanes (e.g. Jamaica), does that deter you from booking a cruise that includes those ports?

No not really.

On the contrary!  We want to help them get back on their feet: while we’re there we tip substantially more and donate money to recognized relief organizations.

Good thinking! Most of these places rely heavily on our tourism.

Usually my cruises are booked well in advance of the hurricanesBig Smile

If I were to avoid areas that had been hit by hurricanes in the past, then I could no longer cruise the Caribbean.Sad

I was in Nassau a week after Sandy rolled through it on its way north and they were still cleaning things up. Once the storm is gone it is business as usual to them as they have to live just like all of us do so avoiding them would be a disservice.

I'm just glad to be on a cruise.

Not a deterrence.

I still go.   If people change plans and do not go then it is a double hit to the area.   After a storm they need the tourist $$$ more then ever.
