It is hurricane season but cruise lines are good at using accurate forecasts to ensure that ships are out of harms way. If a hurricane is imminent, itineraries are changed and very often different ports are substituted (if available) or additional sea days in more sheltered waters. Occasionally, cruises are cancelled or delayed if the situation warrants it. If you have visions of sailing through horrendous seas, the reality is it very rarely happens. In almost 50 cruises we have had 4 rough days at sea (2 days Pacific, 1 day Tasman Sea, 1 day transatlantic).

We went to Spain last year on cruise and the course had to change coming back through the bay of biscay. We were at the front of the ship. Even though we had changed course it sounded terrible and I had bad sea sickness.
But it wont stop me going on a cruise, in fact we have one in April.
Unfortunately it always sounds a lot worse than it actually is and it was my head going into overtime.
Cruise ships are good at moving out of harms way.

If its a good deal Id do it. I would recommend sea sick tablets though as I forgot to take some

Depends what you call rough seas... Having spent a fair few years working on ships at sea I don't call 2m seas rough but cruise ship passengers would. Most cruise ships would avoid any rough seas as even a small roll on a cruise ship can make the passenger sea sick.

The other year we had a cruise booked with NCL ..we had been with them in the March on Eastern Caribbean cruise , so choose Western for Sept one .. Hurricane was around so they divided us on the Eastern again ... Change all plans .Daughters were happy as they were with us and wanted to do Jamaica . Embarks only to be told back to Eastern .. All trips cancelled again ... we were told to expect choppy seas ...It was a Millpond ..all week .Big ships have stabilisers .Honestly dont loose out on a fab cruise .They would not endanger passengers ..But try to get a mid ship cabin less movement felt

My DH really hates boats - he feels sick just thinking about going on the Dover-Calais ferry

Our first cruise was to the fjords to see if we liked it - and if he could "hack" it! Well I guess we were lucky as the weather was perfect and we both fell in love with cruising.

Our second cruise we jumped in at the deep end and booked a 15 night atlantic crossing via Iceland and Canada to New York. As we said past the Shetland Islands - our first stop - with me making a couple of sarnies to take off with us - DH said - oh look there's some islands out there - I wonder which one is ours.

We were completely oblivious to the fact that we were sailing PAST our stop until the captain came on and said that as it was a FORCE 9! we couldn't dock as it was unsafe! DH commented that it didnt look that bad and he certainly didnt feel anything.

The big cruise ships these days have stabilisers to stop the rolling - no point in upsetting the customers as they won't come back if they're sick!

But get some Sturgeron seasick tablets from the chemist just in case.

Edited to say we try to go for a midships cabin and low down - not higher up as there is more movement the higher you go (even they are supposed to be the prized cabins!)
