My wife and I have booked the Golden Princess on Sept 18, Southern Caribbean. What can we expect weather wise? Normally I woldn't book a Caribbean cruise during hurricane season but it's the only time our son can join us. Our ports of call are: San Juan, Barbados, St. Lucia, Antigua, St Maarten and St Thomas.

We have cruised 4 times in September, usually the first week. We have been over most of the Caribbean and in all those times it only rained day in Cozuemel for about 30 mintues. Any other time it has been smooth sailing. I would not worry too much about it.
you usually don't have to worry about hurricanes on a Southern route, these islands are considered out of the hurricane belt, its the eastern islands that usually get hit the hardest IF there is a hurricane. You will not have to weather a hurricane, your captain will steer the ship out of harms way.
