Of course they don't put their ships and their litigation-happy pasengers in any sort of danger or peril. They know days in advance which way the bad weather is going and avoid it. One of the perils of travelling in hurricane season. Be prepared to miss ports or to hae different ports substituted.

Rest assured that any ship will avoid bad weather if at all possible. If a change of course can miss the worst of a storm then that's what happens. We have even changed course crossing the channel to avoid the weather. Of course some times storms cannot be avoided so take the tablets with you!

When hurricane Paloma hit the Cayman Islands last weeks ships simply diverted to other ports such as Cozumel or Grand Turk in the Turks and Caicos islands (as reported on another website). As Aldrich states, if you travel during the hurricane season you have to be prepared for changes to the itinerary.

We did have a similar problem a few years back the ship arrived into St.Maartens which was in total darkness took on supplies and headed further west into the Caribbean to miss the storm got a bit choppy and some heavy rain for about 6 hours after that the sunshine and later in the day the swell began to settle and the following day it was back to being like a mill pond. We did however miss the stop at St.Maartens but on the way back we did make a stop at St.Maartens but this is not always possible depending on the ships itenary and the extent of the storm relevant to any other islands being an option.

I cruised on explorer of the seas last October/November. Unfortunatly Huricane Noel wanted to go all the same places we did, so we missed Haiti and spent the a very wet and windy day at sea and also missed dominican republic, but went to St Maartin instead, which was great. Being close to the huricane was very frightening, 15 - 20 ft waves and 80 mph winds but we were always kept up to date with what was happening, weather wise and I am sure our safety was never comprimised.

By Anne Eaves

Anyone who is a fan of P&O cruises will recall the Adonia, the smallest ship in the fleet, left the company last year and was relocated to Miami to embark on a new venture fathom.

There has now been a u-turn on this and Carnival Corporation has decided to return the ship to P&O. Adonia will be sailing from the UK again from June 2017 after she has had some upgrades including O...
