Fall cruising is one of the best bargains in cruising. It is also one of the best times of the year to cruise. The temps are a little lower but still warm and things seem less crowded. I love cruising at this time of year.
I wouldn't be too worried about hurricanes. If the hurricane hits the port your ship is leaving from, on the day you leave, you won't sail. Otherwise you will sail. The great thing is that ships move! If the seas are too rough they will alter the itinerary to avoid dangerous weather.
If worst comes to worst you may not get to go to the original ports but you will get your cruise.

I have cruised many times in hurricane season, and have no fears..Only once, did it appear it might be a problem, we missed a port to get more fuel, in case the cruise would stay at sea, but we got back to Miami before the storm hit.
The Captains are experts in cruising around trouble areas, and, I would sail the "H" season again.....take out cruise insurance to protect yourself, trip intteruption will help you out..
Trip, with her book & tea!

the others have given you some great advise, don't stress out over it. Your ships captains first priority is your safety, he will alter his route to avoid any potential trouble spots, you might experience a slightly choppy sea, maybe some clouds, a bit of wind and maybe some rain if a hurricane is brewing around, thats alot of maybes and ifs.
