Hurricane Season The Atlantic Hurricane Season runs from June 1 to November 30, the Pacific from May 15 to November 30. In addition to checking on Cruise Critic, who closely monitors storms as they form and provides up-to-the-hour updates for cruisers, I also use the following sites for up-to-date info on storms and hurricanes.

Have you every tried to attach a luggage tag to your bag before your cruise? They send you this paper thin sheet that you cut into ribbons and they ask you to fold them and staple them to your luggage. Well, you know that they won’t stay there as you fly from home to the cruise terminal because the airport luggage handlers will either tear them off accidentally, or they will get wet and fall off. So, you plan to attach them before you head for the cruise terminal. Well, did you bring a stapler with you to attach them. No!! Who carries a stapler on a cruise. Apparently I was not the only person who thought that system sucked. A company called Highwind Cruise Luggage Tags came up with a great idea that works with any cruise line’s luggage tags. I have not got mine yet, but I am going to order them before my next cruise. Check them out for yourself. If you have already tried them, let me know what you think.
