Especially since if they forecast the Shake, they may cancel the cruise at the last minute...

Um, no they won't. Nothing short of a hurricane-style storm will cancel a cruise. I don't think more than one or two have ever been canceled because of a bad crossing. At worst they'll take a circuitous route or wait a few hours to depart.

You don't think more than 1 or 2??? I'd take you @ 3+ if you're willing to bet. I've seen over 5 people post online that theirs cruise through DP was cancelled due to bad weather conditions.

I'm sure its very rare, though. And at times that you wouldn't want to risk it.

You'll need to dress up like me, grow a beard, put on some pounds, and give some lectures.

Id assume itís more heavily distributed on more affluent areas but not by that much. Could be wrong.
