Good point. I voted (March 2010) and then I saw mammacaryn had also voted/posted, and we were on the same cruise. So March got an extra vote.

Here is a website showing historical wind data for Freeport, Bahamas. It seems to coincide with the poll data.

Statistically it should average out between all the months. I was just looking at trending and not actual counts per month.

It was our first cruise in early Jan 2000 - we were on the Wonder.

We were so disappointed, we booked another cruise so we could get there . We have made it every time since then.

We have had 8 opportunities for Castaway Cay in 7 cruises since 2004, all in October. Only missed one time. We did a 4/3 night B2B first week this past October and missed CC on the 3 night. The Captain kept us in calm water that day, but it was a rough ride across the Florida Straits that night!

Actually it seems to be trending toward January.

Just to put you at ease. We have cruised 10 times mostly January and February and only had CC canceled once in February.

We didn't miss Castaway Cay last March, but I remember one of our servers saying that cruise before ours did, which would have been the 3/3-3/6 cruise.

We've sailed twice at the beginning of March and made it to CC both times.

This is making me feel good about my June double dip cruise I was able to convince DH to spend the extra money for DCL by showing him CC footage.

June seems like one of the better months to avoid a CC cancellation.

I guess it really is hit or miss because we were on the 2/27-3/3 and we made it. I was windy enough though that our Stingray excursion was cancelled.
