I cruised in August last year and was in the Gulf when Hurricane Katrina hit. Other than it being a bit "bumpy" for 4-5 hours, it was fine. The captain will do everything he can to avoid bad weather. You might miss a port, or change itineraries depending on weather. We couldn't get back to Tampa so disembarked in Ft. Lauderdale instead. We just called the airline and made arrangements to fly home from Ft. Lauderdale instead of Tampa. If you're the type of person that doesn't like to have plans changed on you at the last minute, I wouldn't cruise during hurricane season. If you're like us and can just go with the flow and have a great time no matter what, take advantage of some of the great deals out there for travel during late August/early September.
