The Hurricane season extended into early November this year, so you might want to re-think your times. However, no cruise line is going to endanger an expensive ship, or its passengers and crew so if a cruise sails in July they must consider it safe. You risk missing ports in the Caribbean at any time as floating blocks of flats are not very easy to dock in even moderate winds.

Given the current situation you should be able to get a full refund on medical grounds if your husband cannot travel then perhaps put the cruise off until next year and perhaps look at someting different for this, just a thought. I had a brain tumour out a few years back and rather than go far we went to Jersey for 14 days and had a great time.

Thanks for the advice I think we will be able to travel this year but I am not sure when the best time is. I notice from reviews that this ship goes to the Caribbean most of the time but I don't want to travel during the summer months if this is the most like time of hurricanes. I know it is difficult to be specific and a member has stated that the season went into November last year. I have travelled to Barbados in September and yes it rained but only for 5 mins a day. Just don't fancy the idea of being on a ship in a hurricane. More replies please.
