Maybe a cruise to nowhere? ;-) I see the tracking, it's due to go towards Fl Friday. My friend is on Allure, due back Sunday. Don't know how storms affect those gigantic ships.

Worst case scenario, if the weather becomes too rough to dock at one of your ports, you'll end up with a day at sea. If you haven't already done so, it might be a good idea to pack a travel size umbrella, in case it's raining at one of your ports. Hopefully, you'll luck out and the storm will have passed by the time you set sail. By the way, pre-boarding at Canaveral was a breeze for us. Hope all goes smoothly for you.

You probably won't have any GREAT problem. I doubt that they'll have enough time to divert to another port. As noted above, you might get a lovely cruise to nowhere! (I personally, LOVE those!

I have never done a cruise to nowhere, but I would enjoy it.

Even if they are a little off, it still will be bouncy with some rocking and rolling on ships in that area.

Wow, you are getting closer to Elite with Celebrity.

My experiance with a Hurricane in the Caribbean.
THE SHOW was CANCELED and the POOL drained DRAINED and netted.

Three other ships doing the Eastern Caribbean were following our ship doing the Western Caribbean, when we were comming into Port in Cozumel there was another four ships already docked.
It was a PARTY.

If you are referring to me, I have been Elite for some time because you get double points when you sail Cocierge Class. Also that equals Diamond on Royal, which is pretty neat as well.

Looks like you'll be getting a bit of rain, and a bit of wind, but frankly, nothing to worry about. Have a GREAT cruise!
