We have cruised in October a couple of times. The most recent was last Oct out of Galveston. Our cruise was right behind two hurricanes in the gulf. It turned out okay, however, it gave us some worry getting into port. We always fly in a day early since we fly out of a small airport to a connecting airport, and we always purchase cruise insurance. So far we have been lucky and have not been delayed and have not had to use our insurance. It kind a like life insurance, we would rather not use it!
