Cruising in the fall?

Recommended Posts

Hi Ladies!

 

Newbie here! My fiancee and I just got engaged and just recently decided to do a cruise wedding. We originally wanted to have our wedding in September, and decided to keep our September date when planning the cruise. When I mentioned it to some of my family members, they expressed concern over cruising during hurricane season.

 

I've only been on 1 cruise and this was in the summertime, so I have no experience cruising around that time. So has anyone ever cruised in the fall? What was it like? Should I move the date up to Spring or Summer?

Honey84,

 

I would agree with the others users. Although it depends on where you are planning to take the cruise. I personally love Fall weddings, which is why we are having ours in the North East while all the trees are changing colors.

I think you should consider moving it. I think Hurricane season is July through October. The other months are cool. Hurricane/Tropical Storms season is very unpredictable, sometimes you get one and other times you get 5. Last year, I knew someone who was on the cruise during the earthquake and the hurricane. They missed ports and had to turn back. Keep in mind that the "rainy" season for your port of calls, so if you are doing your wedding off of the ship, it won't get rain out. 

 

I guess it wont be so bad, if you were doing your wedding the day you board, but I think you are gambling with "mother nature" during this time.  Also check out the months, that the cruise line adds a surcharge. Best wishes on your decision.

I agree with KKS..If it were me I would move it. Have you considered doing it in the winter? As a winter get away?? In the carribean or any of the islands it is typically warm all year round. The one cruise I went on was the first week of December a few years ago and we went in the carribean and everyday on the boat was hot and at least 85 and the islands were the same thing!

Thank you! We are now considering moving it to spring, possibly April of next year. I just hope that's enough time for our sailing guests to save.
