The good news is that modern technology allows advance notice of the approximate path and severity of a hurricane or tropical storm. Cruise ships can use this vital information to change the planned itineraries of their Caribbean cruises.

Cruise lines want your return business, so they certainly take severe weather into account in planning or adjusting itineraries. Here is the latest forecast for 2012, along with some great Web sites with hurricane information.
