Cruising during hurricane season

Have you ever wondered why Caribbean cruise rates are so low in August and September?

The current answer is growing Hurricane Earl. He has already has forced a half dozen cruise ships carrying more than 20,000 vacationers to switch course as it barrels toward some of the Caribbeans most popular islands and more itinerary changes could be coming.

Don't be alarmed the cruise ships and their passengers are safe as they can sail away from harms way. But many of the itineraries will have to be changed based on how & where the hurricanes tracks.
