Poll: What month did you miss Castaway Cay due to the weather

Just curious to see if a particular month has more missed stops at Castaway Cay due to the weather or high winds.

We were unable to dock in early March 2011 due to high winds.

Looks like April through September are the least amount of misses for CC so far.

We've sailed to Castaway 5 times between June and August and have never once had this problem.

The only problem with a poll is that you'll have no idea which specific cruises are represented, thereby creating double/tripl/quadruple-ups etc.

Fwiw, we missed CC in January '11 on the Wonder PC cruise.

Cheers,
Sally

hard to tell from the poll... it's dependent upon cruisers who missed being on the DIS boards.

We had a b2b this past Aug (2011) and on the first 3 day, we were unable to dock due to a hurricane, but on our 4 day, we were able to go to Castaway Cay. However, we didn't know for sure until the night before since they were still unsure if it would be ready in time. Although people seem to say that it was a bit "messy", my family had a great time since it wasn't too hot.

August 2011 -
Castaway Cay suffered heavy damaged due to Hurricane - DCL cancelled our castaway stop - Lucky our family got to see castaway cay on the second part of our back to back - however it did indeed look like it took a beating.

I'll pay a dollar more for our cruise if they put a couple of tug boats there to help!

Course I've never been there, so don't even know if there's room for tugboats.
