Has anyone cruised to Hawaii in October, if so how was the weather? Would September be better? Getting ready to book

I haven't cruised to Hawaii, but I was in Maui in September when Hurricane Inikki hit the Hawaiian Islands. Hurricane season is September, October. I doubt it will be a problem, but it is food for thought.

I live in Hawaii. Our weather in Sept. is warm, generally pleasant, as is October, although there's a slightly higher chance of rain in Oct.

Hurricanes - in the immortal words of My Fair Lady - hardly ever happen - the last one was Iniki. We get some 'near misses' and a hit about once every 10 to 15 years on average.

September is the month of the Aloha Festivals - lots of free entertainment and parades and things going on along with some interesting cultural celebrations.

I just happen to be at the right place at the right time! We got to experience hurricane Iniki when she hit Hawaii in 1992 and I was living in San Francisco, just getting on a cable car, when the earthquake hit San Francisco in 1991. Still, they were both experiences of a lifetime.

Cruisindebi, you will have a great time in Hawaii no matter what.

Just go ahead and book. We are going in October and had the same questions about weather. Friends in Hawaii advised us not to "sweat it." Just go and enjoy.

digdmr, would it be asking too much for you to give us a little heads up on all your future travel plans?

I knew that would be coming up sooner or later. What can I say, I like action! I will keep you apprised of all of my travel plans. At least my recent cruise to Alaska was uneventful, unless you want to count the 4 medical emergencies that happened on the ship. Is it me, or just coincidence?

Just teasing you; I'm sure it's just coincidence.



(four M.E.'s on one cruise?)

Yeah, the first one was on the first night during our dinner; the second one was the ambulance taking someone off in Ketchikan; the third one was stopping the ship for an hour after Tracy Arm Fjord to allow a pilot boat to take a passenger to the nearest hospital. Actually, the fourth one was just the scare of a man overboard. I think he just drank too much the night before and couldn't find his way back to his room (he was 19).

The overarching message here, of course, "GET THE INSURANCE!"
