Default Hurricanes & NCLA - where do they divert?

In the Carib, it's pretty easy to find a port when hurricanes force a diversion in itinerary, but where do the NCLA ships go when hurricanes (isn't is supposed to be typhoons in the Pacific?) force a course change. Just out to sea?

Here's the press release from the ncl website:

Press Releases
Hawaii Storm Update

Miami - Aug 14, 2007 ---

NCL America is closely monitoring the path of Hurricane Flossie. The company has altered the current itineraries for Pride of Hawai'i and Pride of America to ensure the safety and comfort of our guests and crew.

Pride of Hawai'i will be at sea today instead of calling in Hilo, Hawai'i. Pride of America will spend the day at sea tomorrow, Wednesday, August 15, instead of calling in Kona, Hawai'i.

As of now, the company has not altered any other itineraries; however, NCL America continues to monitor the storm's path and intensity.

As always, the safety and security of our guests and crew is our number one priority.

If the company alters any itineraries, NCL will post the information on www.ncl.com under "Hawai`i Storm Update" and advise the team in the call center, who can be reached by calling 1-800-327-7030.

From what I read they hang out at sea, turn it into a sea day.
I could be wrong, i'm not that experienced with NCL & it's pacific itineraries.
