    January weather can be beautiful. We did the 7-night eastern in mid Jan 2010 and the seas were calm and the temps were in the mid 80's.

    Right after that though there were some bad storms in the Bahamas in late January/early February where some cruises were not able to stop or got stuck at Castaway Cay. I think there was one cruise that also had to bypass Grand Cayman because of weather. I think those situations are not the norm though.

    All three cruises we have taken have been in November, January and February and have not had any weather issues (knocking on wood )

    November would be the only one that would be iffy I would think. Hurricane season runs through the end of November. January and February should be good as far as big storms go. Sure, you can still have bad weather, but you're probably not going to get a hurricane then.

    Keep in mind Mick that in October, you're in the middle of the Atlantic Hurricane season.

    Your mileage may vary.

    Hurricane season runs from June 1st through November 30th. But the sad truth of it is that anytime between those dates is the middle. While there's typically a bit of a ramp up to major activity, it doesn't last long and you can get some really bad weather at any point in there.

    It's all just the luck of the draw.

    how many passangers does the ship take?
    im with your wife Tom we sat in the theater on the azura with our life jackets and thought if we need a life boat its gonna take 15 mins to get everyone out this theater i think they just put everyone in the theater so its easier to find the bodies only joking but it does make you wonder what the thinking is behind it

    The quoted numbers are about 2500 on the Magic or the Wonder and 4000 on the Dream. Felt like it too!

    If you don't mind, I won't be telling my DW about that particular thought. She can invent enough trouble on her own thank you.
