We are scheduled for a 10 day Eastern Caribbean cruise on the Dawn, departing 1/29/03. We have finally convinced some friends from the midwest to take their first cruise ever, in Sept or Oct of 03. We have cruised the Caribbean a few times but always between Feb and March and would like to hear from those of you that have cruised the Caribbean in Sept or Oct. When does hurricane season begin and end? Are we better to go in Sept or Oct? What about the Mexican Riviera is that better to do during those time frames? We plan on booking two staterooms on Princess prior to disembarking from our upcoming cruise. Any advise and comments would be greatly appreaciated. Thanks.
