I don't think situations where a ship is unable to dock back in it's home port is common enough to reconsider a hurricane season cruise.True cautionary tale:
My former supervisor at my job was on a cruise with her husband when Hurricane Harvey hit. Their ship couldn't dock, so they ended up stranded on the ship for an extra week. I don't know if they had travel insurance to cover any extra costs they incurred. Hopefully they did.
I would highly reconsider a cruise during hurricane season. Or at least be sure to have good insurance.
Me too. Best pricing of the year and in 25 years have never had an issue due to a hurricane.I don't think situations where a ship is unable to dock back in it's home port is common enough to reconsider a hurricane season cruise.
I will agree with the need for trip insurance simply because it is possible that there could be travel delays to/from your point of embarkation that can affect your trip.
One also needs to be realistic and accept that your original itinerary may not be the one you actually sail. Ships will change course and ports (sometimes drastically - as in instead of the Bahamas you are going to Canada) to ensure they stay away from storms.
I've sailed during hurricane season multiple times and never had an issue.
