Hurricane season got off to a slow start, but since Mid-August, there has been plenty of activity in both the Atlantic and Pacific. In the Atlantic, Tropical Storm Danny has now broken up, but in the Pacific, we have a tropical storm that has the potential for being a major hurricane.

Cruise lines will do everything to keep passengers and crew safe. A cruise is rarely cancelled because of weather, even hurricanes. The cruise lines monitor progress of any storms both in their main offices and onboard the vessels. They work closely with the various weather services, such as NOAA and NHC, to make determinations about itinerary deviations.
Continue to watch this post, I will provide updates as conditions change. If you are on a cruise this week in the area, be sure to monitor the storm closely.
