Gosh, I am sooo sorry! We cruise during either April or October to avoid the kids and family reunions. April is tax time and October is Hurrican Season. Hurrican Jose chased us in the Southern Caribbean October '99. We thought at the time of booking that we were soooo smart and booked late in the month to avoid this kind of thing. Sometimes nature has it's own ideas. David, try another month next time, ok???
