Yes it is hurricain season but ships are given warning and head off away from them! Blyth is also correct in their answer.

A problems associated with San Francisco is fog. We were heading there having passed through the Panama Canal and when we woke in the morning we could hear the ships foghorn going then all the way in and off the ship, it wasn't until we got clear of the city centre did the fog disappear but it is a lovely city to see. As you are obviouly going down the west coast of the USA then it is typhoons which will be a problem, but on the past 4 years less problamatic than hurricanes. Others may contibute further.

The answer is book early! Book now for 2018, if you leave it to nearer the time not only will the prices climb but you are unlikely to ge...

 Thomson Cruises have made some changes in recent years and things are really working for them, in the last 5 years they have seen an increase in passenger numbers of 40%, with 20% being in the last year alone.They have always been looked down upon by a lot of customers, although unjustly so as their reviews have always been good. But with older ships and less of the pomp and ceremony of other lines they have been viewed as being at the lower end of the market.In 2016, they made a major ...
