Hey Tom, I'm on the sensation Thur, Aug 12th. Looks like "Charlie" will be on top of us Saturday when we're in Cozumel. Ya think Carnival will go to a different port, seas be super rough, cancel the cruise? I've never had to deal with a storm before.

I am sure they will avoid any situation that exposes the passengers and the ship to any possible problems. I have cruised the Caribbean during many hurricanes and never had a problem. Actually, the storms seem to flaten out the ocean around it making for smoother than normal sailing. It will be interesting to hear your experience.

The storms you have to watch out for in the Western Caribbean are th winter storms that go from west to east. I have been in a couple of doozies with those.

Keep us posted.

Tom,
The worse that will happen is they will re-route you. We'll keep our fingers crossed that you and your friend will still be able to party in Cozumel. I look forward to hearing your report upon your return.
Bon Voyage,
Nancy

Nancy, I just checked the latest weather and it looks like "Charlie" is going to take a sharp turn northward and away from Cozumel. I phoned Carnival. They said to relax that if Cozumel was stormed out that they would put us in the nearest port with the most sun and fun. We may have some rough seas Friday but I think we'll be fine and end up in Cozumel with good weather. I'll let you all know how it went when I return.

Tom
