Don't worry too much about it Brad. As you said, the worst that will most likely happen, is slightly rougher seas, (just makes for more fun aboard ship IMO), and perhaps some rain. (That happens every cruise at one point or the other.) In any case, it's out of your hands, so make the most of what may, or may not be, a bad situation. (I personally would bet that you won't even notice it.)
P.S. We're sailing Western on October 31st as well, and I'm not the least bit concerned. 8)
My cruise in Aug. was threatened by 3 hurricanes. One fizzled and 2 turned away. The seas were some of the smoothest I have ever seen, including in my navy days. The weather can't be controlled but the ship can. Enjoy the cruise and go with the flow.

Weather can be controlled, but I do not know weather magick(I am Wiccan so I believe in magick, and yes, I am very stubborn). In any case, reports from Cozumel have told me that the Central America system has fizzled out. The one in the Bahamas can stay. Will give Miami decent swells. Might take a surfing lesson if I have the money.
Honestly, not much surfing anywhere on the Atlantic coast until you get up to New Jersey, with the exception of Cape Hatteras in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Fortunately, small conditions are perfect for a beginner like myself.
