We missed January 2006, high winds, it was a big bummer, but we do realize that nature has a mind of her own.

It does seem like January has more canceled CC stops than the other months.

We leave 2 weeks from tomorrow! I sure am hoping that the majority of those January misses are the beginning of January and not the end!I would hate to miss CC, but I understand it can happen. After six cruises with DCL and two of those double dips, I am 8 and 0 at CC! Meaning, I have never missed it and we have cruised Nov, Dec, Feb, and May! sure hoping this cruise doesn't dash those stats!

May 2011 we had perfect weather at CC, I'm hoping our May 2012 cruise will be just as wonderful!

October 5, 2011 so disappointed one of the main reasons I booked the cruise was for castaway cay so I was completely bummed. We could see the island out our window, the captain tried several attempts to dock but it was too windy. We spent the day floating at sea.

3rd week of January, Western Cruise 2006.

We also couldn't dock at Grand Cayman!

The captain tried for almost 2 hours to dock at CC. It was just too rough.

The eastern US was getting a bad snowstorm at the time.

You need to add an option to your poll. Never
Been on 7 DCLs and never missed CC.
One time in Sept did have to switch CC and Nassau days but did not miss the island.

I leave at the end of January, and I really want to stop at CC, so I hope its a go for us! We had friends that missed CC, but it was due to a medical emergency?!?

The poll was designed to see trending for cancellations. We only missed once also out of 10 cruises as I posted already. I wanted to see what months were the greatest likelihood of not getting to CC. That's great that you were able to switch days on the almost canceled CC stop.

Just curious what the explanations were for missing cast. cay in the winter, e.g. jan/feb? I would have guessed they'd rarely miss then and it would be mostly hurricane issues.

If you look at the link below it is quite windy in the Winter months.

We have been extremely fortunate. In 8 cruises that included CC (our 9th was in the Med), we have never missed a stop there We have sailed in May, July, August, September, October and November.
