We cruised twice in January and never missed CC. Out of 11 cruses we missed it once and it was February.

Thought I would break out the old "What month did you miss Castaway Cay due to the weather" poll with all the tropical weather happening now.

We've been extremely blessed...14 DCL trips in various months-Jan, Feb, March, Aug, Sept, Oct, Nov, Dec and we have docked at Castaway Cay each time. We did miss RCL island last year in August, overnighting in Nassau instead.

We lost out power for a week last October (snowstorm). We bought our generator back in 2006 and we have used it many times since. Best thing we ever bought. We may be using it again here in the Northeast this upcoming week.

3 cruises, 3 visits to CC

two were in july - no problem
one at the end of october (i think oct 23) and we were very lucky...
we made it into CC and had a gorgeous day
the cruise after ours didn't get too CC and didn't get to nassau...
it was a crusie to nowhere - basically a cruise that was constantly on the run from hurricane sandy..

but our cruise made it into CC and it was wonderful

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

So what do they do if you can't dock? Just sail at sea that day?

I'm happy to dance with you
I have 2 opinions
We had tried usual things to keep them away, including something like coyote urine, it is sold in hardware stores by us

Out of 10 cruises since 2004 we missed CC twice....in Sept. 2010 for two days could not dock at CC on the Wonder. In April 2012 on the Magic, weather was so cool and rainee, we did not even leave the ship along with 99 % of the other crusers. That 1 % went out there on the beach....I guess to say they where there.
