The best thing is jsut to be aware that it is hurricane season and be prepared to go with whatever the captain decides to do. Obivously safety is the msot important thing. So I advise folks jsut to be prepared that you might not get to your favorite port or whatever. If you are flexible, you will be fine. Obiovusly, who wants to go to a port if it isn't safe.

By the way, we absolutely loved the SKY and oddly--it was one of my favorite cruises--which actually surprised me. I thoguht since it was just four days that it might be somehow "less" than the other cruises. I LOVE the size of the ship. While not the newest, it is kept up very well! And the crew is great. Mostly I was surprised at how good the food was.

Default Maybe we were lucky...

We sailed the Sky during on September 12, 2011 -- one of the peak weeks of hurricane season. Smoothest cruise I've been on to date! The seas were like glass the entire sailing. Must have lucked out, as the sailing a week or two before ours was re-routed due to a hurricane or tropical storm (can't recall which). Just go with the flow and all should be well. :-)

The Sky itself was a well-maintained ship with a friendly crew. Easy to navigate! Rooms were smaller than on RCCL and Carnival, but with being in ports each day, we weren't in ours much! That cruise got my family hooked on NCL.

Have a great time!
