Default Bermuda in September?

I've booked a cruise to Bermuda in September on Celebrity. Should I be worried about a hurricane?

September has been very active for hurricanes last few years but who knows??
The rates are so attractive in September, I don't blame you for choosing then.
(we have had hurricanes on the last two Carribean cruises we booked during Sept/Oct)(this was 2 years ago and 3 years ago)...To me...the waves just make it more fun..............Best of luck...

I believe that in 2000 there were no official hurricanes. One never knows. The cruiselines keep a close watch on the weather and steer clear of bad weather when possible.

Actually, Bermuda has been lucky and never hit by a hurricane yet. These storms seem to go up the coast most of the time.

Well actually,

Bermuda was grazed in Sept. of 1999 by Hurricane Gert which blew winds at the island of up to 110 miles per hour, the ships all left the Island early that week.

see link...http://www.usatoday.com/weather/huri...c/wgbrmuda.htm

In 1991Hurriane Grace formed in the warm waters off Bermuda, between there and the Carolinas. This was the progenitor of the "Perfect Storm". While not affecting the Island directly it certainly affected the area that a ship would sail through between Bermuda and New York.

In 1987 Hurricane Emily hit Bermuda causing 35 million in damages.

However, more tropical storms pound the U.S. mainland than hurricanes devastate Bermuda. And islands in the Caribbean are much more likely to be hit by a hurricane than Bermuda is. Satellite forecasts are generally able to give adequate warning of any really dangerous weather so that precautions can be taken in time.

Ships will take evasive action moving away from a storm to other locales. In this regard it is better to be on a cruise then to be a sitting duck at a resort that is on a direct path with a storm. But pack accordingly because two years ago some folks who thought they were going to Bemuda wound up in Nova Scotia.

It is more likely that you will have some mixed sea conditions and a great week on the island.

Go and enjoy.

We took the Nordic Empress to Bermuda last sept. There were hurricane warnings so we left Bermuda 1/2 day early and sailed out of any danger. We had great weather other than that one bad day. Wonderful snorkling at Church bay. Bus systems are excellent. You can get a 3 day pass and go anywhere on the island by bus or ferry. You will have a great time.

August through October is the peak of the hurricane season and there's no way to predict whether you'll have a problem. I'd recommend travel insurance to anyone traveling to Bermuda or the Caribbean at that time of year.
