We are also on this cruise and I've been looking at weather.com to track Dorian. I've looked at the 10-day weather forecast for Port Canaveral and Grand Cayman and so far it looks like we might be ok. Some rain in forecast for PC, but Sun on Monday in Grand Cayman. Looks like Dorian is losing steam. Search google for National Hurricane Center and see if that is a website you are looking for. I can't post the URL here for you.

We are also on this cruise

Been watching the forecasts also.....not worried about any sea sickness, worried about missing Castaway Cay! This is our 11th cruise and we haven't missed this island yet and I'm hoping not to miss it this time. Best part of the cruise (with the exception it is the LAST day...wish that could be changed).....excited for next week. Lucy

We are on the cruise too! Are you in our Facebook group?

I like following Mike's Weather Page on FB or google "spaghetti models". Dorian had been downgraded to a wave, but is gaining formation again. Warnings went up for southern florida.

I'm on that cruise, too. Definitely National Hurricane Center. If Dorian is any indication, it looks like it takes a week to ten days from early formation off the coast of Africa to any impact on the Gulf. Right now, there's nothing behind what's left of Dorian. I'm thinking if it gets to Thursday with no new storm, then it should be clear sailing for the whole trip. It also looks like the temperatures are going to be nice for the trip, mostly in the upper 80s. I was afraid there might be some 100-degree days in Mexico.

Not only is Dorian broken up, but the low off Africa is not even considered tropical anymore.

Dorian might be reforming but it looks like it will be near the west coast of FL within 5 days. As long as it isn't impacting MCO everyone should be good!

Watch the wording on this. There are NO WATCHES OR WARNINGS for South Florida. NWS is "watching" (monitoring) the remnants of Dorian which is now being tracked as Invest 91L.

Looks like those lucky dogs are going to San Juan tomorrow instead of St. Maarten! What a great itinerary - end on two relaxing sea days....

As of yesterday the main hurricane maps were showing NO tropical lows or invests.

Dorian is nothing more now then rain and a little wind. Yes it could reform, but so can any and all lows at this time of year form into tropical or reform.

Most do not.

Of course this time of year its good to keep a weater eye out.
