Well I wanted to cruise in non hurricane season but my friend and I decided more time gives us a chance to save the money up. Budjets are tighter with the economy and sometimes the deals during hurricane season are good. I did cruise in December once and loved it, the whole ship decorated for Christmas. If I miss my ports again I will be really upset, cause there are no Mayan cities in the Eastern Carrib or in Ocho Rios, Key West or Grand Cayman. So everyone keep your fingers crossed for me as this is my second attempt to see these ports!
