Default Sounds like fun and economical

The only incident we've ever had was when we were on the Allure we had to sail along the outer bands of the hurricane. It was a sea day and about 2 in the afternoon. It went from sunny and hot to this really thick dark cloud and wind and rain. The captain came across the loud speaker and ordered, "clear all the outer decks". DW and I cleared the deck and watched it from our balcony. Scary but kinda' cool. Hurricane season is a really good time to cruise. The price is right.
I have sailed out of Baltimore and we encountered conditions similar to those described above. In my mind it was a great adventure and added to otherwise
dull and boring sea days.
