    Hi everyone-
    So we've narrowed our options down and really like either Royal Caribbean or Carnival that stops in Key West and Cozumel. We'd like to get married in Key West, but both are only docked until about 2 pm. We were looking at mid October 2010, but are very nervous about hurricane season. What's your opinion on hurricane season and taking the chance with the date? If we set the wedding up on our own while at port, not booking it through the cruise ship I mean, and there is a hurricane, would it be very difficult to get our money back under the circumstances? Thanks for any advice!

      Hi Allie,

      Good question... I was really worried about hurricanes too. We had our wedding in the Mayan Riviera Aug. 15. Even though ours was not on a cruise, I worried for months beforehand that there would be a hurricane and we'd have to cancel the whole event. It seems a bit silly now looking back bc everything turned out ok. But with a cruise there is a realistic concern about hurricanes because the route might change. My sister in law was married last October on a RC cruise and their cruise ship did not stop at any of the original ports of call. They did the wedding before departing though, so everything was ok. I think the chances of this happening are pretty small though. Is getting married in the departure city an option? I have been on the Carnival cruise that stops in Key West and Cozumel that leaves from Miami. Maybe you could do a legal ceremony in Miami to seal the deal and then a symbolic ceremony on the beach in Key West.

      Good luck with the planning :)

        I've been on both these and they are great. I like Royal a little better though, a bit nicer in my opinion.
        If there is a hurricane they usually reroute the ships. So you may wind up going somewhere you hadn't even planned which could be good or bad.
        I would just make sure you have good insurance in case something happens.
