I guess some people don't like the heat!! If you and new spouse want to go on a cruise (whatever line you choose!!!!) in August then go. Yes, maybe it is hurricane season, but bad weather can happen anytime of year. Your itinerary may change if your cruiseship needs to get away from bad weather. Me and husband went to Jamaica in September for our honeymoon and it was beautiful. I personally like warm weather. Whatever you choose have a great time and congrats on your upcoming marriage.
