Hurricane Season starts June 1 in the Caribbean.

I was watching YouTube and this was in my recommended to watch selection.  It reminded me of start of storm season.

It is all part of cruising. I have been on a ship in Alaska where everyone had to grab the dinner plates to keep them from sliding off the table and the show had to stop for a few min due to ship movement.

One time Heading back up the coast from Puerto Vallarta Mexico the captain made the announcement "If you have ever been sea sick, I suggest you take you medication now before we leave port, if you think you may get sea sick medication is available at the pursers desk for free. I would suggest tonight that you stay in your cabin if you do not need to be in the public areas. Room service can deliver your dinner and there are free in cabin movies" That night the MDR was only 1/3 full and plenty of seats at the bars. If my bed had been facing a different way I would have been rolled out of bed that night.

I thought it was a fun night.

I was on a ship where it tilted on far to one side that all the dishes fell off the table,vcrashed to the floor and bottles of wine fell in my lap.

The best part about a hurricane is that there is plenty of advance notice ...from the time they spawn off the coast of Africa and make their way west ... they are tracked hour by hour and thankfully, many of them never make it to full strength hurricane levels.

A tornado can come out of nowhere and wreck devastation in minutes with very little warning.

My DH would love it! As long as I am wearing the patch, I'll be OK!

I wish bottles of wine would just fall in my lap! Yummy

Maybe I'm an odd one but going through rough seas for me is fun. It's something dramatically different from my boring land lubber life. But I definitely don't want to go through a hurricane!

We don't book cruises during hurricane season. Storms or rough seas sometimes can't be avoided, but I'm not adventurous enough to take a chance on a hurricane.

Little waves may be fun, but a storm at sea is never nice with one potential good outcome -- and lots of bad outcomes. I was on an aircraft carrier in a storm - everyone said "No Problem, she is too big to be affected". WRONG!! Not nice!
