Will these hurricanes change your future cruise plans?

With all of the devastation and destruction in the Caribbean will you still cruise there in the next year or two or will you cruise elsewhere or even take a land vacation instead?

We will be cruising in March 2018 as planned, visiting Amber Cove, Grand Cayman and Half Moon Cay, but if our cruise wasn't already booked I'm not sure if we would have still booked a cruise or if we would have done a land vacation in Florida instead.

Hoping nothing goes anywhere near Bermuda

Just saw a news bulletin that a magnitude 8.0 earthquake has hit Mexico near the southern border.

 

I just saw that also on the News,  lucky it was off the coast out at sea,  on land it would have been catastrophic.

The storms have me doing a short local road trip instead of a cruise for a get away.   Getting hard to find a place to go between Storms, Fires and Earthquakes.

If you listen to those radical religious zealots, this has nothing to do with climate change.  It all has to do with the wrath of the almighty and the sinners of the world.   Katrina means, "to cleanse" and New Orleans, hedonism central, needed to be cleansed.  Harvey hit Houston because they had a gay mayor.  I swear, I couldn't make up the bull$hyte they preach.  And I'm pretty good at making crap up.     I wonder what God has in store for Las Vegas ?  That is, if anyone can get him away from the craps table. Big Smile

He has sent Debbie there to clean it up!

As far as cruise plans, the hurricanes, fires, earthquakes and other disasters have been around a lot longer than I, and they will remain long after I am gone.

They do not change their plans for me; I will be dammd if I change my plans for them.

That's right! I run a tight ship out here ... 

I have a different perspective on the Caribbean because I have seen it destroyed before ... the man made stuff eventually gets fixed and nature has a way of healing itself...it does take time.

There are ample islands that didn't get hit - yet - so I may focus on the southern caribbean versus eastern but all in all I will support that beautiful area as much and as often as I can ...I will always avoid traveling during hurricane season!

Islanders tend to focus on the loss of life not material things when a hurricane whips through and it seems to energize them in a wonderful way if the death toll is low which so far seems to be true.

We have cruised in hurricane season every year since 2013 (has it really been that long since our first cruise??  seems like yesterday).  It's the easiest time for the three of us who regularly sail together to plan a cruise.  Honestly, if we make it on a ship, we are ok, so I doubt we'll be changing our fall cruise tradition
