    I just read this information about the 2003 hurricane season and thought someone else might be interested

    http://cruises.about.com/cs/cruisingweather/a/hurricanes.htm

    It is nice to know that ships have the advantage of diverting! Hurricane season wouldn't stop me from cruising, but it does make me glad I don't live on the coast. I'll take my 200+ inches of snow per year! :eek:

    I took my Mom (Lilly) on her first airplane ride and cruise last September (9/28) - Hurricane Lili diverted our Western Caribbean to a "Magic-al Mystery Cruise" and we visited Castaway Cay twice, Puerto Rico and St. Thomas.

    The seas were calm and the weather was absolutely perfect!!
    Since the hurricane prevented our docking, we were not charged for the missed excursions.

    No concerns from me about being on the DCL, but can't say that about air travel!!!!!

    Hi Wishing on a star.


    Consider how often the meteorologists are accurate in their forecasts...

    Did they really call it the Magic-al Mystery Cruise? Sounds like the name of a Beatles album.

    Hey ohioMickey.


    I think Rae is too young to know about The Beatles...

    I wouldn't worry too much about it.. after all our weather man makes predictions all the time and can't even get the three day forcast right, so a forcast for several months out is a bit of a guessitmate... I wouldn't mind a mystery cruise, might be exciting!

    I have to admit I'm more worried about my flight than a cruise during hurricane season! Skip Nassau and give me two days at Castaway Cay anyday!!

    Wishing on a Star...HI...:wave: getting close to the double digit dance!!

    BD - LOL about the forcasters!!!! :teeth: But with the big factors like the El Nino thing..... I think they have just a tiny chance of being right with this one? :rolleyes:

    BD- I remember when Elvis was alive!!!
    And I saw the Beatles on Ed Sullivan!

    Amazing that old age hasn't faded these memories.....but thanks for the compliment.

    As for the title of the cruise, I started calling it that, apologies to the "Fab Four"!

    Have a great day!

    That was me in the bordello. I Thought I saw you there.

    The pancakes were to die for.

    Jim

    Being from the south I can promise you these guys who make these hurricane predictions have no method to their madness. Just last summer they changed their predictions at least twice and then went back to their original prediction ( If you take enough guesses, eventually you will be close). I can't believe they actually get paid to try and guess how many hurricanes there might be in a year. Why not just wait till they form and take it from there?

    Hi Jim.


    Couldn't have been me. I was reading in the library.


    Isn't breakfast served 24-hours?


    Perhaps, but I've heard tell Elvis prefers his breakfast in bed - that way no syrup goes to waste...

    To those "hunka hunka burning love fans" - it really was Elvis - he was eating peanutbutter and banana sandwiches with rootbeer!

    If we do end up with a hurricane diverting us, well, all I can say is "Let the Mystery begin!"

    As you well know Rae, no-one knows which way the wind will blow on our cruise through life.

    Sometimes it will be a hurricane, sometimes a light carribean breeze.

    We cannot fight it, we just have to "go with the flow" and "Wonder" at the Magic" around us when we get there

    Jim,
    A wee bit of a personal question here - with that gift of gab, are of our clan?

    Rae,

    Not too personal...

    I hale from the McCarthy's of West County Cork, and the Conneely's of County Galway.

    The McCarthy sect we are from include the Fella that Owned Blarney Castle, home of the famed Blarney Stone.

    When I was yound, we lived in Cork City and my brother and I used to play soccer ("football", on the grounds of the castle every weeked.

    We kissed that auld rock about 200 times. So it just goes to show you........

    Hey Jim.


    If our life is really a cruise, wouldn't that make a concierge obscene???...

    Probably.

    But as one Supreme Court justice said, "I can't define obscene, but I know it when I see it."
