We are scheduled to leave from Miami on the Sunrise on Thursday 9/29.  There is flood and hurricane warnings and watches throughout the whole state, but Carnival has not even made a "we are watching the storm" statement.  According to the news and weather, most of us will still be under dangerous conditions on Thursday and most flights may be cancelled as well.  When will Carnival acknowledge there is a storm danger and if they decide to sail with anyone lucky enough to make it safely to the Port of Miami, do the rest of us lose our money??

All the cruise companies actively monitoring any hurricane. They certainly have no desire to have a catastrophe. The Coast Guard has specific criteria for port closures as does the FAA for airports. Yep, cruise lines hold off a decision as long as possible until it is obvious. What I’ve seen in the past, when a port is closed, ships wander around  off shore until the port reopens. The next cruise is shortened. Haven’t seen the next cruise cancelled (yet). Good to have bought cruise protection, especially during hurricane season. Hurricane season is a big reason why September cruises are so cheap.
